What does community mean to you? What are creative ways to connect and engage as a community? What are different ways of approaching community?
Warner Pacific College hosts an art exhibit titled “Come-Unity,” during the month of April in the Otto L. Linn Library.
An artist reception is scheduled April 16, from 6 - 7:30 p.m. There will be live music, poetry, and interactive art opportunities. Krispy Kreations artist Rusty Weise will even provide an oversized edible work of art; and that is something you can sink your teeth into!
