3 ways you can help the
Frank Bette Center for the Arts today!
Artists want to share their passions by talking about their latest inspirations and be inspired by others, a venue to display their creativity, to learn new skills and techniques, and a place to gather with a community of like-minded people.
At the Frank Bette Center for the Arts, we want the opportunity to rebuild our home to host this creative artist community. We have made great strides in making city mandated repairs to reopen the Center in the last few weeks. The electrical issues cited by the city are repaired thanks to a generous donation from Victor Jin Properties. However, we still have to rebuild the top landing of our outside staircase, redo the venting on the upstairs hot water heater and sink, and file for a “new use” and other permits. So far, we have raised over $12,000 towards our first fundraising goal of $25,000 to reopen the Center. Once we reopen we must, with your help, get the Center back on its feet and raise additional funds for improvements such as updated electrical service, improved lighting, new heating in our classrooms, etc.
