LPC Online Art Auction is now open to view; Bidding starts July 1

The LaPointe Center for the Arts provides grants to local artists, allowing artists and groups to develop and grow as well as bring art to the Madeline Island and the Chequamegon Bay area. We’ve been around over 30 years and have touched so many who have been inspired by the beauty of the Apostle Islands.

Last year, we canceled our Annual Wine Tasting because of COVID and had to find new avenues to support all of our local artists. This year, you can support, engage and fund island art and artists by participating in our LPC Online Art Auction. Click the link below to preview the pieces. Then, on July 1, let the bidding begin.

Bidding will end July 15 and winners will be contacted to make arrangements for delivery or pickup.

Next LPC Book Club Meeting

Tuesday, February 16 at 7:00 p.m. central

The book is A Good Provider is one who leaves:  One family and migration in the 21st century by Jason DeParle.  Kirkus Reviews says of this book, “a gorgeously written, uniquely insightful and evenly critical volume that hits every talking point on world migration today.”

The author lived with a family in the Philippines to gather material for his book. Pixie Martin will be leading the discussion.  Seri will be ordering copies for the Library and other public libraries will most likely have copies of the book.

Upcoming Book Club Meetings

After surveying the members and determining the availability of discussion leaders, it was decided to stay with the third Tuesday of the month and to continue with the zoom format.

March 16:  Educated, by Tara Westover led by Robin Russell

April 20: The Splendid and the Vile by Eric Larson led by Mark Hier

May 18: Anxious People, by Fredrick Backman led by Susi Saxl

Enjoy your reading!

The Madeline Island Book club will start up in January with Susi Saxl making the arrangements.  The zoom discussion will be held Tuesday, January 19th at 7:00 p.m. CST. The book is Wintering by Peter Geye.  The Library has ordered several copies which are available to be borrowed.

We have not gotten together to arrange the selections for 2021 that many of you sent in and voted upon but we will be doing so in the near future.

Free Webinar: Federal Resources for Creative Community Development

Are you looking for funding to support a community development or creative placekeeping initiative in your neighborhood? If so, tune in on Tuesday, February 9, to Federal Resources for Creative Community Development—a free web seminar designed to help you access federal funds and harness the power of the arts and culture for community development.

This seminar features a new Creative Placemaking Public Resources Guide that offers:

  • a curated selection of federal funding sources that you can use to advance equitable community development,
  • examples of initiatives that have transformed community development through creative partnerships, and
  • practical tips on accessing federal grant programs.

A live demonstration of the guide’s powerful search functions will reveal often-overlooked federal resources for equitable community development, creative placemaking and the arts. You’ll also hear from practitioners who have successfully leveraged public funding opportunities for creative placemaking.

Complete session details and registration information are available at http://bit.ly/2LdRvDc. This one-hour session is designed for arts nonprofits, community development groups, state and local government agencies, arts advocates, cultural district managers, and creative placemaking practitioners. All organizations that are pursuing arts based community development initiatives are welcome to participate.

This one-time event is offered through a partnership between the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations and Metris Arts Consulting.
