Picture This: Transformation Tuesday Pop-Up Party on Public Square

Circle Centre Commences Elevate the Arts 2020 Campaign with Unique Downtown Affair

Wilkes-Barre’s Circle Centre for the Arts kicked off its community transformation campaign this evening with the first of many Pop-Up Parties on Public Square. Local favorites, Dustin Douglas and the Electric Gentlemen lit up the impromptu stage. Circle Centre artists stunned with live drawing demonstrations. And patrons wandered about the work of local luminaries, Robert Bergstrasser and Shirley Trievel. The first-of-its-kind, monthly event featured cocktail-styled dishes by Rodano’s and The Atrium. And guests washed it all down with local beer and wine.

Downtown dilettantes delighted in the evening’s festivities for a cool $10 cover. The post-work reprieve proved an awesome alternative to the hum-drum happy hour. And it all benefitted a most deserving cause – the Circle Centre for the Arts. Their mission – transforming Northeastern Pennsylvania through positive partnerships between the arts, local business and industry, politicians and people. Similar Transformation Tuesday Pop-Ups are planned for every second Tuesday throughout the next nine months.

To be honest, you had us at Pop-Up Party. The rest is all just a bonus. We couldn’t help but stop and see what all the fuss was about. And we happened to bring the camera along. Take a look.
