If it twirls, swirls, inspires and fires your imagination, chances are it started with a little ink.
After 40 years of "weaving the Arts into the fabric of our community," the dreamers at the Ink People Center for the Arts are coming together with the community for its 40th anniversary party. Tapestry of Dreams, happening Saturday, Jan. 26 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Forever Found ($65), celebrates the Ink People's four decades of bringing art to Humboldt and helping launch countless artistic projects through its DreamMaker Program, as well as helping area youth express themselves creatively through the center's MARZ Project.
The celebration showcases some of the very best in local artistic expression with performances by DreamMaker projects, including Circus of the Elements, live music, aerial silk acrobatics, dance performances, comedy and Tarot readings, plus stories from 40 years of the Ink People with cofounder Libby Maynard and friends. Food and signature cocktails from the Inky Fingers Bar will be available and more fun is in store. Help the Ink People celebrate a legacy of art on the North Coast and see the impact it can make in your life and community.
