On Tuesday, July 16, Three Penny Tap Room on Main St. in Montpelier will donate a portion of sales to help us finish the elevator project. Stop by, say hi, and raise a glass to accessibility. More details, including a menu, are available on Three Penny’s website. See you there!
Eric of Lajeunesse Construction, unfazed by the snow!
After years of planning, we’re finally beginning construction on our LULA elevator! The elevator will allow us to serve all visitors, and to offer all kinds of new concerts, exhibitions, readings, camps, lessons, and other programs – it will more than quadruple the accessible space in our building, and will reach five levels. For the first time, all visitors will be able to explore shows at the T. W. Wood Gallery, participate in rehearsals and performances with Monteverdi Music School, and take part in River Rock School activities throughout the building.
Building temporary walls around the construction site
We are deeply grateful for all those who have supported the project so far – including the State of Vermont, Vermont Arts Council, and National Life Group – but we are still in need of help to complete construction this summer. We hope you’ll check back here for updates, come visit us, and help us make so much more possible at the Center for Arts and Learning!
