Calvin Center Idea Incubator
The Artists of the Mahoning Commons are more than pleased to announce the recent addition to our endeavors, The Calvin Center Idea Incubator. A turn of the century Victorian Era Public School, this gorgeous building now houses the Artists of the Rust Belt and the the Rust Belt Theater Company.
The CCII will be open Saturday, May 1st, Noon till Midnight and Sunday, May 2nd, noon till 5pm. Arts Youngstown will be serving cold beer during this time to raise funds and will also be displaying work by regional artists throughout the building.
Artists of the Rust Belt will host an artist market from noon till 5 pm both days and will be holding a Chance Auction of fine art and craft items from participating artisans.
The Rust Belt Theater Company will be holding surprise performances throughout the building to lend atmosphere to this charming venue.
The infamous (dare I say Notorious) Viking Jim Allgren of The Home Grown Show on 93.3 The Wolf will provide D.J. services during the daylight hours for your entertainment, featuring tracks from local musicians.
Starting at 8 pm on Saturday night, and ending at Midnight ($3 cover charge), a fine line up of local bands will take the stage. These include: Sam Goodwill, Braille, Fillmore Jive, and Tigerstyle. You must be 18 years or older and provide a photo I.D. to attend.
