The Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture (NDCAC), located at 1045 W. Washington, will host a SB150 neighborhood block party to celebrate the West Washington historic district on July 18, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm. As a celebration of South Bend’s past, present, and future, community members and institutions alike are invited to take part in the festivities. This will be the culmination of two Summer Arts Enrichment camps for neighborhood middle-schoolers and their artwork will be on display. Everyone is also welcome to contribute to the SB150 Time Capsule that will be buried to be opened at South Bend’s Bicentennial.
To pay homage to our city’s past, capture the moment, and look forward to tomorrow’s possibilities, we make a call to local artists, musicians, and craftsmen to share their talents with the community. Local residents and community members at large are invited to interact with the institutions in their own neighborhood and to benefit from an engaging exchange. In addition to the NDCAC’s facilities being open as part of the event, the Civil Rights Heritage Center of Indiana University South Bend will be open across the street. The event is free and open to the public.
