Thank you for the welcome!

Art teacher, Mary Minnig talks about the exhibit to students from St. Marys School.

     Thank you to everyone who stopped by the reception on Sunday February 20th to welcome and support me in my new post as director of The Wassenberg Art Center!
     The warm response, wonderful food and great turnout are further evidence of the good people of Van Wert’s commitment to the arts in their community. With this type of civic involvement opportunity for program and exhibit expansion are boundless! I am truly excited, inspired and honored to serve The Wassenberg Art Center’s mission and to continue the rich heritage it has provided to the area. Public ideas are welcome and crucial so please, do not hesitate to contact the center if there is something you want to share, explore, learn or create!
