The Bad Art by Good People title is truly meant to be tongue in cheek, as the end-product of the community leader working with an artist/mentor will more than likely be good. Community leaders were matched with artists/mentors by drawing names out of a hat back in November. The Hannibal Arts Council is excited to connect community leaders and artists in a new way by implementing this new fundraising concept, which was modified from similar ones produced by arts organizations in Kansas and Ohio.
Coffee Talk Lecture Series
The Coffee Talk Lecture Series is designed to be relaxed, informal and informative. Through the Coffee Talk Lecture Series, the Hannibal Arts Council will present community members speaking on various topics, including travel, history, health, food, well-being and yes, art. The series is designed on the premise that everyone has a story and a wide variety of interests and are sometimes willing to share that with an audience. Program partners include Wade Stables P.C., Second Breakfast Coffee Roasters and the Missouri Arts Council.
Our Coffee Talk Lecture Series is FREE and open to the public!
WE HOPE TO BE BACK UP AND RUNNING SOON!
Art History Luncheon
Held each year in September, the Art History Luncheon is a special event designed to fit into a workday lunch hour and also take that time to educate, enrich and engage through focusing on one famous painter or painting from history.
Our 2019 Art History Luncheon was a big hit!
Share the Joy
Soup. Dessert. Performance.
Held each year in December, Share the Joy combines three great things: food for the body, music for the soul and funds for the arts! Each December the Hannibal Arts Council hosts a fundraising dinner and performance during the holidays. The event will include homemade soups, breads and desserts followed by special performances.
We are currently planning Share the Joy for 2020. Be sure to check back here for up-to-date information.
