2013 Community Involvement Award

AC accepts award in Indianapolis

On November 6th, the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana accepted the 2013 Community Involvement Award from The Arc Indiana in Indianapolis. Evansville Arc nominated the Arts Council for the work done with the exhibit, Fabric Mosaics. This collaborative show exhibited in May earlier this year and displayed the work of Evansville Arc residents. Evansville ARC is a recognized leader in creating a community in which individuals with disabilities are valued for their contributions as citizens. For more information about Evansville Arc, go to evansvillearc.org.

Tashi Kyil Monastery Visits the AC for the Second Time


In partnership with the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, IN, seven monks from the Labrang Tashi Kyil Monastery in Dehradun, India have been touring the United States. This tour has included two stops to Evansville, once in the spring and again recently. These stops have brought week-long programs to the Evansville community, where the monks have shared the culture and religion of Tibet, and raised much needed funds for their monastery.
