Meet Me in the Gallery will kick off your local NPR station's 2020 event season on Friday, Feb. 7 from 5:30-9pm. We are partnering once again with the South Bend Museum of Art for this evening that features the work of area high school students being honored as part of the Scholastic Art Awards Exhibit. We are thrilled to announce Four Winds Casinos has stepped up once again this  year to sponsor our full slate of events in WVPE's 2020 Entertainment Series!

The event will take place in the Warner and Jerome J. Crowley Community Galleries at SBMA with support from the Century Center. WVPE members get in free with tickets that have already been mailed out. You can learn more about the Scholastic Art Awards here.

Music at the event will feature the ‘feel-good’ instrumentals and lyrical hip-hop storytelling of Rhymer/Educator (R/E.) The band is headed up by Joe Ruiz, a LaPorte High School teacher who was an entrant last year in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest. He went on last summer to open for acts like Vanilla Ice and Pitbull when they gave concerts in Michiana. Check out some of WVPE's past stories about R/E here and at this additional link.
