HISTORY

After a six-year hiatus, Love resurrected Celebrate the Arts as a one-day event in 2017 to commemorate the opening of SAGE Community Arts new space in the Montgomery building downtown, the unveiling of Allan Houser’s downtown sculpture, Interconnection, and the launch of Frackelton’s Dining for a Cause.

According to Sheridan Travel & Tourism, the arts economy generates as much as $20 million in local economic impact each year, while artists and art exports serve as tremendous ambassadors and advertisements, respectively, for the community. During the 2017-18 season, Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College has drawn more than 10,000 local and visiting guests into its concert hall, gallery and classrooms for exhibits, shows, lectures and performances, and more than 300 students are enrolled in Sheridan College arts programs. The WYO Theater’s concerts, plays, operas and special events also pulled in more than 10,000 guests last year. And since its launch in 2003, Sheridan Public Arts Council has acquired 59 sculptures and displayed dozens more on loan throughout downtown Sheridan.
