Show the Lyric a little love!

Join us to Heart Bomb the Lyric!

Saturday, February 6th, 10am - noon.

Let's cover the windows in the Lyric with hearts to show how important it is to our community.

What is Heart Bombing?  The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota  inspires people to connect with historic places, ensuring community vitality."  Heart Bombing is a Preservation Alliance event that encourages us to highlight old places in our communities that matter to us all and give them some lovin' during Valentine's Day week.  

In Virginia Minnesota we're heart bombing the Lyric Theater building on Chestnut Street.  Opened in 1912, the Lyric was home to community sing-alongs, speeches, vaudeville shows, plays, musicals, and even early broadcasts of the World Series.  It is now being renovated for all to enjoy.  Check out our page about the Lyric's history.

Come make a Valentine (Heart Bomb) and let's plaster the windows of the Lyric building with our love this Valentine's week.  Join us Saturday, February 6 at 10am at the First Stage Gallery, 514 Chestnut St. downtown Virginia to Heart Bomb the Lyric!

Help us leverage grant funds to reconstruct the front doors to the Lyric Center for the Arts!

You can play a part in helping the Lyric Center open the doors on more performances and programs!  

We need to reconstruct doorways in their historic locations in order to renovate more space inside the Lyric.  We have already received grant funding to partially pay for this project, but we need to show local support through donations as well.

Your donation will have a huge effect in moving this forward!

As of January 15th we have raised over $4,800!  10% to our goal!
