Community Event, All Ages
Plymouth Arts Center is very saddened to announce that our summer Cheese Capital Jazz & Blues Crawl, scheduled for Friday, August 14, 2020 has officially been canceled amidst concerns over COVID-19. We have been pondering for many weeks over this decision. Due to the Jazz Crawl’s potential to bring large crowds together in small areas, we decided that it would be best to cancel for this year. As always, our top priority is the safety and health of our performers, guests, volunteers, and venues. We are incredibly disappointed that we won’t be able to see all of you and share in an evening of great Jazz & Blues music, we will miss you! Each year we look forward to this important and necessary fundraising event for our organization, this year would have been our 17th annual. We’ll be back next year, and we sincerely hope that good health and prosperity for our community and country returns. We ask you to please mark your calendar for next year’s fundraiser, Friday, August 13, 2021!

Art, All Ages
Wisconsin artists inspired by the renewed interest in the encaustic medium will exhibit their art. The encaustic medium uses colored pigment added to hot beeswax. The wax can be heated by several different sources and applied to a surface such as wood or canvas and also shaped into three-dimensional art. This technically challenging medium is seeing increased interest by artists because of its dimensional quality and luminous color.
