Windhover Center for the Arts, which has embarked on a major expansion and renovation project, has a goal of reaching 1,000 members this year, said Kevin Miller, executive director.
“We are almost there as we reached 800 members this month,” he said. Windhover has had as many as 500 members in the past. The increase is due to having staff dedicated to handling membership and an increase in communications with current and past members, and with people who attended events at Windhover in the past, he said.
Windhover also has never increased its membership dues, Miller said. A couple or family can join Windhover for a very reasonable rate of $60 per year. However, that will change June 26 to reflect the added amenities occurring in the downtown arts center. One of those added amenities for the newly redesigned arts center will include outdoor concerts with the street as the venue. Major acts will perform.
Members of the arts center will learn first which performers are coming to Fond du Lac. Members will have the ability to purchase tickets before nonmembers and the tickets will be discounted. Members will also be able to visit the new two-level art gallery, the Contemporary Wing, at no cost.
An increase in membership dues will begin following The Reveal, a street party from 5 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 25. At The Reveal, Windhover staff will be making a major announcement. The public is invited. Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound is set to perform; there will be complimentary food and a cash bar. There is no cost to attend the event and street parking is free after 5 p.m.
