your Wikli-fix: artful

The arts abound in Columbia City, this week and every week — but especially this week. There's a textured, sweeping mosaic of performance and visual arts for your enjoyment, plus some invitations to make your own.


Live locally.

This week the Landmark District Review Committee takes a look at a proposed demolition to make way for a (downsized) apartment building on the St Gobain site — Friday.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Columbia City Community Chorus

CCCC Fall Session begins Sept 14. Looking for a place to connect with your neighbors, have fun, make a joyful noise, and make a difference? Come sing with us!

Directed by Kathleen Tracy, the CCCC welcomes people of all ages and cultures to come together in a fun, inclusive and spirited singing community. There is no audition, and no singing experience is required, just a desire to sing in harmony with others. We are not affiliated with any particular religion or spiritual path. At the end of our fall session we will perform a concert to benefit the Refugee Women's Alliance Domestic Violence program.

The Chorus rehearses on Tuesdays 7:30-9pm at the Columbia City Church of Hope (formerly Bethlehem Lutheran Church), 3818 S Angeline St.

fall art classes

City Art Farm offers year-round afterschool classes, homeschool and adult classes.

City Art Farm believes in project based learning, incorporating the garden and environment, to give a wider vision to create art. Kids and adults will experience learning from the ground up, using many materials grown on site or recycled goods.

At City Art Farm, art becomes a way of living rather than a separate interest. Through the environment, students will learn traditional art concepts of design, drawing,painting and sculpture, as well as harvesting, animal care and sustainable gardening.
