COME, EXPERIENCE THE ARTS…
At Westminster, we believe that artistic talents are gifts from God, and that these gifts should be nurtured and shared with others. Our fine arts programs allow us to share our love of the arts with our neighbors by hosting performances of music, drama and dance, and by offering visual art exhibits. Thank you for celebrating the arts with us. We invite you to join us for other opportunities when we seek to serve our community in love. If you have any questions please email Laura.
The 2018 Fall/Winter Fine Arts Season is brought to you through the generosity of the Westminster Foundation, individual patrons and corporate donations. This enables us to bring a variety of events and experiences to the community at no cost to the individual. We invite you to join us in our efforts to enrich
the lives of those in the community around us. If you would like to support the arts at Westminster, please call 515-274-1534.
