Five area arts organizations have banded together to provide a type of "one-stop shopping" for people wanting to find all arts-related events in the Rhinelander, Eagle River, Land O' Lakes and Three Lakes areas.
Trista Langley-Tyler from The Warehouse, one of the Arts Calendar's sponsoring organizations says the idea came from a meeting from Arts Wisconsin. She says they met to find a way to market this area and the arts as a cultural destination. She says a common calendar for Northwoods arts came out of that...
"....and Nan Andrews from the Library here in Eagle River graciously offered to create the calendar for us. It is a place for people to go an see what is going on for all of our area...."
Co-hosting of the site is sponsored on a yearly, rotating basis by one of the arts centers using the calendar. The calendar is set up so there's easy navigation and also to place an item on the calendar.
Langley-Tyler says the area has many arts-related activities going on and this calendar provides a way to find out what is happening on any given day. The Warehouse in Eagle River, LOLA in Land O'Lakes, The Three Lakes Center For the Arts, Mill Paper and Book Arts and ArtStart in Rhinelander are part of the calendar.
