Neighborhood Artist Series: Kaity Lacy
October 12 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
The Farmers Market runs each Wednesday from 3 to 6PM (May to November). Each week, over 2,000 neighbors and tourists visit the Market to shop, socialize, and enjoy its festive and family-friendly atmosphere.
The Neighborhood House Program (NHP) operates under the Christ Church Preservation Trust umbrella, a secular nonprofit dedicated to preserving the historic Christ Church campus and strengthening the multiple communities that use it for community building, education, and artistic expression.
In 2016, the NHP took over the struggling Farmers Market and rebranded it as the Farmers Market at Christ Church. This seasonal, weekly offering is a much-anticipated event that attracts a diverse swath of people of all ages. This year, The NHP plans to present a series of free performances and family-friendly art workshops that will take place during the Farmers Market.
On October 12, we will feature Kaity Lacy, a painter from Philadelphia. Kaity will be guiding families through a “paint by numbers” designed by her and inspired by the gardens at Christ Church. Using watercolor paints, each family member will walk away with their own work of art.
The Christ Church Neighborhood House has served populations in need since opening its doors in 1915. Today, the Neighborhood House serves the community as a performance venue and gathering place. We have built out the infrastructure for the performing arts to thrive here and developed the Neighborhood House into a fully functioning arts center. The intended impact is to share free performances with our neighbors to build community spirit.
