Bower Center Groundbreaking
On June 26, the Bower Center for the Arts hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for their upcoming expansion. The Bower Expansion Project will completely change the façade of the front exterior of the building, making it look like the vibrant arts center that it is, as well as construct a new lobby, install an elevator, a new heating and air conditioning system and two new bathrooms. Many other projects will further improve the Center. Generous donors Dr. John Bower and Edna Curry attended the ceremony. The Bower Center for the Arts enriches the cultural life of Bedford and Central Virginia through the arts by fostering creative expression, offering diverse educational opportunities and preserving historic venues.
