Program: Gary Camarano introduced Kim Ewoldsen, Executive Director of Morrison Area Development Corp. Kim spoke to an exciting program whose goal it is to "Promote Morrison as a regional arts' destination by providing a venue for local artists, to create, promote and sell original art and to foster arts' education through lessons and programs."    They have created LOFT 112,  a new facility in Morrison where this goal will be accomplished. They have currently 27 artists showing their work in LOFT 112, and are adding additional artists quickly.  The Loft is a membership organization and Kim distributed a brochure which lists the different levels of membership available.   To find out more information call 815-772-4005.  Thanks Gary & Kim for sharing.
