mica-opening-cropMercer Island Arts Calendar, a new addition to the Mercer Island Center for the Arts (MICA) website, recently went live. The Mercer Island Arts Calendar lists arts events happening on Mercer Island, including literary arts, dance, music, theater, fine art events, exhibitions, concerts, recitals, and special events.

The Mercer Island Arts Calendar is laid out on a calendar template, and each event is linked to more detailed information.

“Our on-line visitors will now experience one centralized location for all the arts activity on the Island,” said Prady Misra, MICA Communications Chair. “In the same way that the creation of MICA will welcome all of the arts programs in one physical location, the Mercer Island Arts Calendar creates a new on-line home for the wide-ranging arts programs presented on Mercer Island.”

In addition to providing a resource to the community, the Arts Calendar also provides outreach opportunities for Mercer Island artists and arts groups performing on the Island, to reach new audiences.

“As a performer and speaker on Music Wellness, I am always looking for ways to let people know what I am doing. As a member of this community, I have always wanted a source to know what is happening on the Island and support our artistic community,” said Connie Wible, owner of Musical Mind Studio. “Thank you, MICA for this lovely, easy to use calendar.”

Artists and arts groups are invited to submit events that take place on Mercer Island and are open to the public. The arts calendar includes a button at the top of the page for event submissions.

Mercer Island Arts Calendar features programs from the MICA resident arts groups: Children’s Dance Conservatory / Island Youth Ballet, Music Works Northwest, Mercer Island Visual Arts League, Musical Mind Studio, Russian Chamber Music Foundation, Youth Theatre Northwest; Mercer Island schools, many other community organizations and visiting arts groups.
