The Wednesday, June 11, 2008 10:00 AM meeting of OFTA (Old Friends Talk Arts) will offer a special treat when Susan Twomey, the Executive Director of the Buchanan Center, tackles an assessment of her first three months on the job. Her topic is “Where I See It Now.” She will explore where the BCA stands from her point of view and where it might and can go. As she said, “I’ve now had a chance to measure the situation and I think I am ready to share some of my goals and dreams for the future.”

Ms. Twomey brings a strong background of arts, education, and management experience to the table and has already shown that the great strides made to fulfill Grace Buchanan’s vision over the past twenty years can be used to build an even more exciting future. OFTA is honored that she has chosen to share her initial vision for the future with us and invites all members of the community to attend.

OFTA meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the main gallery of the Buchanan Center for the Arts on the public square in Monmouth, IL. Admission is free and refreshments are available. If you have an idea for a program on an arts related topic or wish to talk about your own artistic work, contact Jim De Young at 734-5529 or jdeyoung@maplecity.com. Scheduling opportunities are still available for this fall.

OFTA is partially supported by grants from the Buchanan Center for the Arts and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
