There's talk going around that the Arts Council is throwing a Big Soiree on February 14th at the Selma Center.  Kent Fisher, IRVAC pres., here to say it's all true.  Read on...


Truth be told, everybody in Our Fair Valley who has ever enjoyed an Arts Council fundraiser has high praise for the fun and friendly festivities. Remember the Harvest Moon Hoedown?  The Artisan's Holiday Fair? Three Rivers Chorale?

IRVAC - the Illinois River Valley Arts Council - is the non-profit that for over a decade has brought the enriching influences of art, music, dance, and theater to our school kids and worked to promote our local artists and the arts experience in the Illinois Valley.  Most recently, IRVAC has been active in merging environmental education with the arts experience, an exciting nexus for positive change.

I could go on and on about how IRVAC volunteers, then and now, positively impact our community but, you get the picture. Now IRVAC is inviting you to enjoy yourself and, in the process, help us further our mission.  What could be easier than that?  Here's the lowdown...
