Congratulations to all the fantastic artists from this year's Regional Juried Exhibit! This year’s show…
As Hill Center has weathered the storm of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors has remained our highest priorities. Our building has been bustling with activity throughout the past year, although it has looked a little different than before. Beginning early in the pandemic, Busy Bees – an arts and music camp – became a valuable resource for parents in our community, offering children a safe, socially-distanced, and educational space during the week. Tippi Toes, Young Warriors and Super Soccer Stars have continued to offer their in-person youth programs as well.
This summer, Hill Center will continue its tradition of focusing on summer camps, including Boolean Girl, Busy Bees, Mad Science and Young Warriors. In mid-July, we are piloting in-person classes with small group Spanish and French language courses. This will mark the return of in person programs for adults.
Looking towards fall, Hill Center has a robust schedule of in-person events as we celebrate our 10th anniversary. From fall 2021 to fall 2022, Hill Center will commemorate its 10th anniversary year and the return of public programming, including the American Roots Concert Series, Talk of the Hill with Bill Press, cooking classes, art classes, Pottery on the Hill, Family Day, Galleries exhibitions and many of the other programs you know and love. Be sure to sign up for our emails to get notifications of all of our upcoming programs.
Meanwhile, our special events and rentals team has been busy handling inquiries and booking dates for birthday parties, baby and wedding showers, bar and bat mitzvahs, and meetings and conferences. The garden and West Plaza have been popular places for families, friends and colleagues to reconnect after spending time apart. Many dates for summer and fall are already booked!
As our community continues to respond to the pandemic, Hill Center has numerous policies and procedures to keep our community safe, including mandatory mask wearing for ages 2+, increased cleaning and sanitation, new air filtration systems, hand sanitizing stations throughout the building, and more. Our entire staff is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We’re keeping up to date with all of the CDC recommendations and city regulations on the pandemic, and of course, everything is subject to change as the situation evolves.
We’re so thankful for the community support that has gotten us this far, whether it be attending one of our many online conversations or cooking classes, viewing one of our virtual Hill Center Galleries exhibitions, donating to our All Hands on Deck campaign, or simply offering us a note of encouragement along the way.
