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!
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!
It's time to shop local! What could be more local that buying hand-made artwork and crafts from our Iron Range neighbors? Stop in throughout the month of December to find a gift for your special someone.
