New Ideas, New Building: 2701-7 Cherokee Street
We have spent the last 9 months hosting trivia nights and cocktail
parties, partnering with local businesses, writing grants and running
a Kickstarter campaign and now it is time to make the next step: WE
ARE MOVING TO CHEROKEE STREET!
The Luminary is moving forward with plans for a new location at
2701-7 Cherokee Street. The 13,000 sq/ft complex in the center of our
favorite street will host an expansive gallery, reconfigured venue,
studios, workshop space, and housing for international
artists-in-residence. We will begin a complete renovation of the
building in late October of 2012 and plan to open to the public in
Spring of 2013. And since we just couldn’t wait another 6 months, we
will begin hosting our exhibitions in an interim location at 2644
Cherokee Street starting on October 19th, 2012.
For more information on the project, we have a detailed overview at
www.theluminaryarts.com/cc. Read up, share with your friends, help
however you can.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Capital Campaign: Phase 2
We have been able to get to this point through your support. The
funds we’ve raised so far will enable us to pay for the lease and
initial renovations. This is a major project that will involve
replacing many of the systems, stabilizing the structure, and putting
on a new roof. You continued support is necessary to be able to
finish the project and move in early next year. Please donate today
at www.theluminaryarts.com/cc to help see this project through!
We are happy to announce this great news just in time to celebrate
our 5 year anniversary! Please join us at our annual fundraiser, FORM
Contemporary Design Show on September 28th & 29th. Buy tickets at
special, limited dinner with Entre Underground, Sump Coffee, Urban
Chestnut, and Bitburger in which you take home the chair you sit on.
Skilled (and unskilled) labor will be needed in everything from web
development to putting up drywall – interested in volunteering your
time + talent? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly let
you know about volunteer opportunities.
We are so excited to share with you the biggest news The Luminary has
had yet. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who pledged on
Kickstarter, volunteered, hosted a fundraising event or bought a beer
on our behalf. We could not have come this far without you and can’t
wait to see what the future holds.
