The Grove Event Center and the Springfield Township Community Arts Center serve as the venue for many community events, classes, social activities and private engagements. Both facilities are temporarily closed as exciting interior renovations take place. The Arts Center is scheduled to re-open the second week of June - in time for summer camp! The first wedding at the Grove is already booked for the first weekend in July. We look very forward to a Grand Opening Celebration later this summer.
The architect plans were designed by MSA and Schrudde and Zimmerman was the contractor selected to complete the interior renovations of both buildings.
The Grove Event Center will receive new carpeting, drywall, paint, interior uplights, new restrooms and bar.
The Springfield Township Community Arts Center (previously referred to as the Senior Center) will include a coffee bar, pottery studio, woodshop studio, three classrooms/meeting rooms, retail and gallery space. ADA restrooms will be added to meet current standards. ArtsConnect will program the space with new classes and activities for all ages. Memberships, as well as studio passes to explore pottery and woodworking will inspire creativity and fun.
Through the generous support of partnering businesses and churches, many of the ArtsConnect classes and existing drop-in senior programming will continue off-site during renovations.
Kids First Act! Theater and private band lessons are being held in the Allen Paul Community Room. Line Dancing is being held at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center. Watercolors, Oil Painting, Digital Photography and Drawing classes are being held at Ohio Living Llanfair. Chair Volleyball is being held at the Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA. The Wyoming Recreation Center is hosting most of the senior adult drop-in programs - Art Club, Tai-Chi Qigong, Woodcarvers, Senior Aerobics, dominoes and various card groups.
