The Davis International Folkdancers are making their mark on the Davis Art Center. The Folkdancers, a recreational folk dance club, have donated $1,000 toward the “Make Art Happen” fundraising campaign at the Art Center. Their donation will be used to revitalize the Studio E dance studio, where the Folkdancers hold class every Sunday night.

From repairs to the sound system to fresh paint on the walls, the refurbished studio will be enjoyed by participants in more than 30 weekly dance and yoga classes.

“We love being part of the Davis Art Center family, and club members voted unanimously to provide support to the Art Center to help maintain the facility we enjoy on a weekly basis,” said club president Barbara Linderholm.

Davis Art Center Executive Director Erie Vitiello welcomes the dancers’ support.

“We are so appreciative of the Folkdancers’ generous gift,” Vitiello said, “and their support benefits many others besides their own group. This donation will help us improve and expand our diverse dance and movement program, from modern, jazz and Irish dance to ballet, tap and hip-hop.”

The Art Center currently serves more than 25,000 children and adults each year through a wide variety of multi-disciplinary arts classes and events. The goal of the “Make Art Happen” campaign is to raise $50,000 by June 30 in support of facility improvements, website upgrades and program enhancements.

“So far, the campaign has brought in close to $20,000,” said Shelly Gilbride, director of development and special projects for the Art Center. “Between individual contributions from the community and the support of groups like the Folkdancers, we hope to hit our goal!”

For more information about classes, programs and events offered at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St., or the “Make Art Happen” fundraising campaign, call 530-756-4100 or visit www.davisartcenter.org.
