The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will host its Open House & Sensational Soup Cook-off on Saturday, February 25, from noon until 3 p.m. At this free family event, arts center instructors will show visitors all the programming the facility has to offer in studio arts, music, dance, culinary arts and much more. Visitors are invited to explore the Community Art Gallery, which will display work by local and regional artists from the 2017 Winter/Spring Art Show. There will also be live music and a concessions stand. Don’t miss this opportunity to find out why the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is the area’s premier community arts center!
Admission to the event is free, but visitors can also sample entries to the Sensational Soup Cook-off for $5 per person. Samplers not only enjoy tastes of delicious soups made by local chefs, they also vote on the winners. Prizes will be given for first, second and third places.
Members of the public can also enter their soups into the contest. Those who wish to enter should email Sue Nigra, director of the Nigra Arts Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure their spot. The deadline for entry is February 14. On the day of the contest, chefs should bring one crock-pot of soup to the facility for sampling.
