THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Winthrop Arts Community Launch Event on Saturday, January, 23, 2016! It was a huge success with over 450 attendees!
From the interactive statue garden to the blooming inspiration quote wall to the live painting and the pop-up performances, we simply couldn't have asked for more! We had an incredible time and hope you did as well!
