Taylor McDarison, Part-Time Gallery Manager for the Cultural Arts Center, said, “The ThreadBenders are a creative, innovative fiber arts group with so much gusto and passion in each of their projects. The challenges their members undergo are both incredibly intriguing and awe inspiring. There’s certainly no lack of love for every laborious stitch and collection of all the unique fabrics. It has been a privilege to collaborate with this group and I cannot wait to share this upcoming quilt exhibition!”
The Cultural Arts Center is located on 402 West Main Street in the historic White building near the Birge Fountain. Parking is behind the building. An elevator is available for access from the parking lot entrance.
