Programs and events will include the 2019 ArtHouse Residency Program for artists & creatives, community classes, theatrical performances and events, art exhibits, film screenings and more.

The Grand Opening Celebration Event of The ArtHouse will take place on Friday, January 18, 2018 and is open to the community. The event will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony to introduce the space to the residents of Linden as well as live music, performances, and painting. 

Following the ceremony, the ArtHouse will present a staged reading of The Parcel Man - an original work by author and playwright, Andrea Clinton. The play features a web of scandal and adultery with main character, Gino, at the center. Set in a small southern town, the drama unfolds when there's a meeting in the ladies room and Gino's womanizing ways become the main event with his wife as the guest of honor.

The ArtHouse ribbon cutting event will begin at 7:00 PM and is free of charge to attend. The staged reading of The Parcel Man will begin at 8:00 PM. An encore reading will take place Saturday at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
