If you're among those suffering from cabin fever this winter, a Fort Wayne arts group may have the cure.
This weekend, Fort Wayne's Wunderkammer Company is running a unique pop-up shop, partnering with Three River Festival's Art in the Park to bring a little activity to the dead of winter.
Wunderkammer's "Art in the Park Preview" is a pop-up shop with purpose, according to curator, Dan Swartz. This year, the event is adopting a "summer art fair" format that allows attendees to see a wider variety of artists and mediums.
Most garden activity this time of year is limited to daydreaming over seed catalogs, but two Fort Wayne residents, Holly Chaille and Sheila Hudson, are busy cultivating a brand new urban gardening and Horticultural Healing Program, expressly for veterans.
Beginning in March, "Greenleaf" will provide a nine month, hands-on vocational training opportunity for fifteen vets to grow new skills for work in horticulture-related fields, and organic gardens to benefit the community.
The Alicia Pyle Quartet's unique fusion style of music has been claiming fans here in Northeast Indiana for nearly five years.
This weekend, they are celebrating their place in the music scene with their first album, called "Ground Level."
Adding to the diverse textures provided by core APQ members Brad Kuhns, Derek Reeves and Jose Morales, "Ground Level" features sit-in performances by Jane Heald, Rachel Mossburg, Kimball Glaspie and John Forbing.
Since it's the holiday season and we're in a playful mood, we're just going to come out and say it: toys rule!
It seems everyone has a memory of a favorite childhood toy: a doll, a truck, a ball or a game that brings warm memories immediately to the surface.
But toys and the play they inspire have been around for thousands of years, dating back to prehistory. And while the types and packaging may have changed, the point -- having fun and learning -- has not.
