Silent Films

The OVST performing art camp is underway- having started on Monday and we are all having a good time so far. Dan has become a mother hen to the next generation of techies; Kate, Kate and Connie are doing their thing, and we had a smashing time with Nellie making hats! What will the following two weeks bring? Delight and awesomeness!

We have some new interns and some work studies and things couldn't be better, especially now that we have functioning air conditioning and- (wonder of wonders!) the water pipes are being replaced!! Do you know what that means? That means you will be able to: flush the toilet, wash your hands and then go get a drink of water from the drinking fountain (yes, the drinking fountain, we're kickin' it old school). ARTS/West is ready for all of our many patrons and supporters and we cannot thank you enough for your patience over the past three years.

Tonight some local musicians will be working with a local film maker on his silent film as they use the sound system and projector to add some music. (Sorry kids, this one's private) but we sure hope you'll all come out for the Aquabear Legion showcase on Saturday night at 8pm. Next week will also bring the DIY keg and case homebrew competition on July 16th (see previous post- 21 and over!).

If that isn't enough for you go and check out
