Join the Edwardsville Center for the Arts in honoring 2022 Patron of the Arts recipient Paul Abert.

The celebration takes place at The Ink House, on July 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar are included. Buy your tickets before July 6.

Paul spent 10 years on the board of EAC during a great business transition. He helped implement the Edwardsville High School Facilities Agreement between the District 7 School Board and EAC. This arrangement has provided EAC with space for growth and development over the past 11 years.

Additionally, while Paul served on the Board of Directors, EAC decided to launch the Edwardsville Art Fair to help support community events in our town, raise awareness of EAC in the community, and provide a financial flow to support programs. Paul has improved our community and the EAC through his investment of time and energy in supporting many local non-profit organizations.

It is with great honor that the EAC invites the public to celebrate the winner of Patron of the Arts, Paul Abert.
