Calling all creatives! It’s time to plan your entries for the Re-Think Art Competition & Exhibition at the 2018 Northwest Indiana Earth Day Celebration.
Lubeznik Center For the Arts, an arts hub integrating contemporary art exhibitions with educational programming for kids and adults in Michigan City and the Michiana region, recently celebrated the retirement of several longstanding board members.
We published hundreds of galleries on ValpoLife this past year. Football games, 5ks, and parades all deserved a gallery this past year! With so many notable events in Northwest Indiana, it’s no wonder we had so many stories to choose from!
Featured Creatures showcases artworks completed by student artists of Lubeznik Center for the Arts' (LCA) Health Promotion through the Arts Program, in partnership with The Social and Learning Institute (SLI) and Paladin, Inc, provides weekly classes for adults living with developmental and cognitive disabilities. This program, now entering its tenth year, provides a creative space for these artists to explore and develop motor and vocabulary skills, as well as develop social support and peer relationships. Thanks to Duneland Health Council for generously sponsoring this program.

Everyone builds a unique relationship with art throughout their life, from finger-painting as a preschooler to wine tastings at painting classes as an adult.

The second night of Valparaiso Community Schools’ This Is Our Story Art Festival was another wonderful holiday treat for the audience. On Tuesday night, the Valparaiso Community Schools performed and showcased their best musical performances and artwork from across the school district. From elementary to high school, students prepared for months to display their talent to thousands of people. The crowd was excited to hear the holiday performances presented by the many different choirs, orchestras, and bands. Although it was a cold night, the Valparaiso High School gymnasium was filled with the warmth and love of parents, families, and students rejoicing in togetherness.
Hosting an artist and their work is a rewarding endeavor for any business. For Blackbird Cafe, hosting artists is more than a reward, it’s something they feel they must do to support the art community. For them, utilizing their space to highlight local artists is a wonderful way to bring art into more lives and draw exposure to local artists.

Over 300 attendees braved the stormy weather to support the artists of Opportunity Enterprises, raising over $30,000 to benefit OE's Art Enrichment Program and provide client artists with a commission for each piece sold!
We’ve all heard our friends belt out a ballad of “Hot Blooded” in the bar on a Saturday night while the rest of the bar usually joins in on the chorus. And anytime “Cold as Ice” comes on the radio, you know you just can’t change the station. We recognize so many of these songs because they’ve permeated our culture so deeply over the last 40 years. Foreigner has 22 hit songs on Billboard’s Top 40, 9 of which were Top 10 hits. A claim that only a select few bands can also attest to.
