Van Wert Respresents! Exhibit 
February 9 – March 4

Art Representing Van Wert

The Wassenberg Art Center has been a staple of Van Wert for many years, since 1954 to be exact. Long before even this, a solid vein of art has run through the community. In this curated exhibit, we want to see Van Wert represented in art. Come and see the different renditions and scenes from varying perspectives, of our beloved community or event that took place in Van Wert.
Join us for the opening party following the Van Wert Main Street Chocolate Walk, serving homemade soups, freshly baked bread, our wine and chocolate pairings and featuring live music on our baby grand by Weston Thompson. 

Jordyn Fishman 
March 9 – April 8

Large Format Murals

Jordyn Fishman's work deals with issues of injustice while simultaneously pointing out the the strength we have to push back and to come together to fight and to love. We must fight not only for a more just world, but also we must fight for love. To love this world, to love one another, and to love ourselves is the most powerful force we have. 
Jordyn Fishman lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was an artist featured during ArtPrize IX in 2017, her host venue being the Grand Rapids Museum of Art. 
Jordyn is a student at Penny Stamps School of Design at the University of Michigan. Her work is compelling and the large format murals engarge the audience on a grand scale.
