MOVIE NIGHT : April 20th 7:30
Frederic Arts hosts a Movie Classic "The Graduate“
a 1967 romantic-comedy-drama film with music by Simon & Garfunkel at Frederic Arts Center on Friday April 20 at 7:30pm.
The film tells the story of 21-year-old Benjamin Braddock, a recent college graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), and then falls in love with her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross). In 1968, The Graduate was nominated for seven Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Director. The film would go on to clinch the Best Director Oscar for Mike Nichols, launch the career of Dustin Hoffman, and stir nationwide controversy for its transgressive plot.
Join us 50 years later for viewing, refreshments, popcorn, trivia, perhaps some discussion & a good time.

Frederic Arts has bought the building at 310 Lake Avenue South from the village! We have already received some generous donations that allow us to make the purchase and begin a capital campaign fund to improve the Art Center and provide ADA accessibility. Stay tuned for updates on our remodeling and fundraising plans.
Building ownership will enable Frederic Arts to continue to bring arts education and appreciation to the community. As an example, after the successful 2017 launch of Art, Craft & Design Classes, we are excited to expand the class offerings for 2018 and beyond.

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION ART PROJECT
YOU HELPED US BUILD A MOSAIC BENCH. As a welcoming gesture and a community involvement and beautification project, Frederic Arts with the help of nearly 100 participants built a mosaic bench to be located the in front of the new clinic. The design as envisioned by local mosaic artist, Cynthia Rintala DeMar is represented above. We used raw material gathered and ask you to help us put it together during the Family Days weekend. The concrete slab was ready and by the end of Saturday. YOU did it! Thanks!
The results are amazing and THANKS to everyone who helped!
Frederic's Public Arts Commission hopes to add something each year in various public locations throughout Frederic. “It’s a way for village residents and businesses to invest in themselves,” said Jack Route, also a Commission member and on the Board of Frederic Arts. “By adding something each year we hope to increase the awareness of the Arts and in some small way add to the distinctive quality of life we have here in Frederic.”
We are accepting donations in any amount, towards another Public Art purchase for the village. This can be in addition to a membership or separately. Please note on your check your preference. If you have an interest in serving on this commission, please contact Jack Route at 715-371-0144 or email@example.com Donations are accepted anytime by stopping into the Frederic Public Library or sending a check to “Frederic Arts, Public Art” at PO Box 334, Frederic, WI54837. The commission operates independently but receives some funding and administrative help from Frederic Arts.
