Here is a look back on what our October PEACE Pops featured...

PEACE Pops is a quarterly celebration of art and community. The last Friday of January, April, July and October, we invite the community into our building to tour open studios, listen to live music, participate in hands-on art making and a variety of other activities to keep your creative spirit flourishing. It is a special way in which we can connect our community with our member organizations and artists – like Lake Erie Ink, ARTFUL, Singers’ Club of Cleveland, Robin VanLear & more!

This event is free and open to the public. Free snacks and refreshments will be available.

Our October PEACE Pops is one of the highlights of the year!
Come and share in some Halloween cheer.

There’s a little something for everyone young to old.
And a warm place to gather out of the cold.

Come for the candy, the art and the food.
This event will inspire a spooky mood.

City Lite band will fill the air with their tunes,
while you pose for pictures in your best costumes.

Journey into our black-light tunnel if you dare.
Add your own art to the mural if you care.

Robin VanLear’s enormous puppets will be on the prowl.
And Lake Erie Ink will tell stories that may include a good howl.

Check out the show by the artists of ARTFUL
and stop by their studios for which they'll be grateful.

Grace Communion will kindly treat you to cider, doughnuts and popcorn
while Lake Erie Ink will help you make a mask to adorn.

Friday the 27th is the date to mark
to attend the event with a creative spark.
