This is a great way for people to get out of their routines and try some new places, new dishes and support our community.”

Taste of Muskegon is produced by the Downtown Development Authority. Taste of Muskegon Tour will take place on June 12-19 and Taste of Muskegon will return to Hackley Park September 24-25.

Annual Bands at Blandford Outdoor Concert Series Expands to Six Days

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Live music is back at Blandford Nature Center. Music-lovers of all ages are encouraged to come and enjoy a night of live music in nature with their loved ones. This year’s Bands at Blandford Outdoor Concert Series will be expanding to six Saturdays throughout the summer with shows from 7-9 pm at Blandford Nature Center located at 1715 Hillburn Ave NW. Grand Rapids, MI 49504.

This series will highlight several musical genres by local bands in the Grand Rapids area each night. The lineup for this year’s series is as follows: The Bootstrap Boys on June 12th, Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps on June 26th, Cabildo on July 10th, Last Gasp Collective on July 24th, Peace to Mateo on September 11th, and MOLLY on September 25th.

The Diatribe will also be providing live poetry at the second show in July as well as both shows in September. The Diatribe uses performing arts to empower young people to share their stories, raise awareness of social issues, and create change within their communities.

“Bands at Blandford connects people with both music and nature, and this year we are excited to be adding poetry to several of the shows by partnering with The Diatribe,” said Volunteer Manager, Katie Clouse. “Our intent is to provide a safe and beautiful space to engage our community during these difficult and uncertain times. It’s so important to continue this series and support these local musicians who have been greatly affected by the pandemic this past year. We’re glad we can safely provide a stage to amplify these voices within our community.”

Guests can bring blankets and chairs to unwind with an adult-beverage on these warm summer nights. Concessions will be available for purchase from local businesses such as Brewery Vivant, Sacred Springs Kombucha, and more. Guests are welcome to bring their own food to this event, but no outside alcoholic beverages are permitted.

This year’s concerts were planned with the safety of the community in mind. A few of the precautions include limited capacity pre-sale ticketing and socially distanced circles throughout the event space for guests to safely spread out and enjoy the show. Guests will be required to wear a mask when outside of their circle, while purchasing drinks, or checking in.

Tickets are $20 per member and $25 per non-member. Tickets go on sale for June shows on May 3rd, for July shows on June 3rd, and for September shows on August 3rd. This event is open to the public and available for all ages. All tickets must be purchased prior to the show, no additional tickets will be available at the door. To learn more about the bands or purchase tickets, attendees can visit: blandfordnaturecenter.org/experiences/community-calendar/

Adult Programs:

Hackley Public Library is celebrating Mental Health Month with several virtual events, including a Yoga class, an Art Therapy session, and a Music therapy program!

Mindful Movements – Yin Yoga Class (Virtual Zoom)
12:00 pm, Thursday, May 6
Mental Health Month Series

Kick off our month long celebration of Mental Health Month with mindful movements during a virtual Yin Yoga class! Yin yoga is a meditative and physical practice where poses are held anywhere from 90 sec to 5 min. It allows the dense tissues of the body to lengthen and find flexibility through passive movements, and offers us the ability to let go of held stress and emotions that we hold inside our bodies. Yin yoga is a beautiful way to allow past and present stressors to melt out of the mind and body, and is a way to reconnect with the deeper pieces of who you are and heal past and present trauma. For more details, or to register for this free, virtual program, visit hackleylibrary.org, HPL’s Facebook page, call 231-722-8011, or visit the Library. Free.

Springtime: Letting Go to Grow – Art Therapy (Virtual Zoom)
6:00 pm, Monday, May 24
Mental Health Month Series

“Springtime: Letting Go to Grow” is an hour workshop where participants will learn about art therapy and experience working with art to let go of the bits and pieces that are holding us back. Art therapy is a wonderful mental health option that requires no artistic ability and is a comfortable way to explore our thoughts and feelings that does not necessarily require verbal expression. Please virtually join Deb Czechowicz, Registered Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor on May 24th to explore and grow! Registration for this free, virtual program will open at 10 am on April 24. An art therapy kit will be included with registration, while supplies last. For more details, visit hackleylibrary.org, HPL’s Facebook page, call 231-722-8011, or visit the Library. Free.

Music Therapy and Well-Being (Virtual Zoom)
6:00 pm, Tuesday, May 25
Mental Health Month Series

In the last of our series celebrating Mental Health Month, we are going to explore music therapy. You may have seen news articles on the benefits of music therapy for adults with dementia or for those who have lost their ability to speak due to traumatic brain injury. Pretty cool, right? But how does it work? Presented by Audrey Stein, MSW, MT-BC, participants will learn about what music therapy looks like with a variety of populations and the neuroscience research that has led to advancements in the field. Furthermore, participants will receive insight on how music therapy improves our physical, social, intellectual, and emotional well-being. Registration for this free, virtual program will open at 10 am on April 26. For more details, visit hackleylibrary.org, HPL’s Facebook page, call 231-722-8011, or visit the Library. Free.

Superhero Day is April 8th at John Ball Zoo

Zoo guests can meet the rotating group of superheroes including Black Panther, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Star Lord, Thor, Black Widow and more.

Guests can also discover themed animal enrichment and signs at animal habitats showcasing animal superpowers. Plus, they can enjoy Superhero-themed concessions like Hulk Floss, Spidey Slush, and a Captain America Freezy.

John Ball Zoo notes that the superhero meet-and-greet will be different this year. Instead of individual photo opportunities with each character, guests will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with a group of superheroes on the beautiful Bissell Tree House deck. For the safety of the superheroes and guests, these magical interactions will be from a safe social distance.

There are a limited number of guest tickets available for Superhero Day. The Zoo highly recommends reserving timed entry tickets online prior to arrival.

These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade and Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make. Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams… and a soulless marriage. With a small, powerhouse multi-ethnic cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today’s popular music, Songs for a New World is a great way to bring the next generation into the theatre.

‘Grand Gestures’ Exhibition
January 12 @ 1:00 pm – February 6 @ 3:00 pm
The new exhibit of mixed-media drawings on display at the ACWL-Nuveen entitled “Grand Gestures” was inspired by a thoughtful grand gesture when artist photographer Diane Zoellmer gifted 100 sheets of 44” x 84” tagboard to the ACWL-Nuveen in October. The seven dynamic and distinctly different drawings filling the ACWL-Nuveen Gallery January 12 – February 6 are meant to challenge the viewers’ notion of the theme through their sheer scale and bold creative vision.
The exhibition is open to the public during our regular hours: Tuesday – Friday 1:00pm –5:30pm and on Saturday from 11:00am – 3:00pm. The ACWL-Nuveen will be hosting a Facebook Live opening reception where we will be interviewing some of the artist participants on Friday, January 22 at 5:00pm. Log onto our Facebook page to attend!
