ArtsBRIDGE

Local artist Lashae King, who was scheduled to present her work at an ArtsBridge event that was canceled due to COVID-19, has donated nine pieces of her art to First Presbyterian Church of Benton Harbor. What a blessing!

Following recommendations of the Berrien Co. Dept. of Health, the Michigan Dept. of Health, the PC(USA), and the Lake Michigan Presbytery, this event has been postponed. We’ll post here again when it is re-scheduled. Thank you for your understanding.

The mission of ArtsBridge is to celebrate the arts in our neighborhood and provide a space where the diversity in our community is bridged through the appreciation of music and art. In 2019, the 9th Season of ArtsBridge is underway! The programs continue to draw people together. Many members of the community began to support ArtsBridge in partnership donations as well as the church’s support.

ArtsBridge conveys the spirit of community, joy and hope these concerts bring to the community. Special thanks goes to Susan Burkholz, who has spearheaded the publicity for the events and does a lot of the nuts and bolts work behind the scenes.

Former Pastor Laurie Hartzell says “There is God-given talent and art all around us. Our hope is to provide a space where their art can help bridge our diversity as we fellowship together and revel in each other’s creative gifts.”

All programs start at 4 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) at First Presbyterian Church and are absolutely free.
