While the stage is always open, Lane Cooper and Lisa Austin will be hosting two open forums in the gallery on Saturday, January 18th and Saturday, February 8, 2 pm to 5 pm. The events will be kicked off by stump speeches by Lisa Austin on the 18th and Lane Cooper on Feb. 8th. The theme of these events will literally be “taking the stage” and, in addition to the artists, will feature addresses by invited guests and volunteers from the audience.
