Check the attic, the closet and the garage for gently-used wall art pieces and donate them to the Attic Art Sale to help raise funds for art education in Redlands. Sponsored by the Redlands Festival of Arts (RFA) and the Redlands Art Association (RAA), the Attic Art Sale is a two-day art event with over 300 pieces of art that might typically be purchased in a gallery, but at bargain prices that could yield some lost treasures.
The sale opens Friday, March 1, with a $25 per person cocktail party preview sale, 5:30 to 8:00 pm, at The Museum of Redlands (MOR), 700 Brookside Ave. The collection opens to the public on Saturday, March 2, from 8 am to 3 pm.
Event organizers are seeking donations of wall art, which can be dropped off until Thursday, February 28 at the offices of Lois Lauer Century 21 Realty, 1998 Orange Tree Lane, from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Art donors with questions should call Shirley Harry: 909-214-7179 or email her: . For general information or to purchase preview sale tickets, call the RAA at (909) 792-8435.
Shirley Harry, Event Chair, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to edit your wall art collection and share art that you’ve enjoyed, but no longer have a place to display. Best of all, you’ll be helping us raise badly needed funds for arts education programs.”
People often call the RAA and the RFA to ask what they can do with inherited artwork or pieces that they’ve purchased and no longer want. Unfortunately, Harry says that it’s harder to sell art on the secondary market than one might think.
This fun event offers art lovers an opportunity to donate their artwork to a local charitable organization for a potential tax deduction. Art donors will fill out a donation form listing the artwork and its value, but will need to consult a tax professional to comply with IRS rules.

SHARE YOUR STORY! The Anthropology Museum at Cal State San Bernardino is preparing an exhibition that will highlight everyday stories of childhood, and YOU are invited to contribute.
The exhibition will feature objects that community members have saved from their youth – personal mementos that have sentimental value and help to tell stories of whimsy, change, tragedy, triumph, and personal growth. Your object and story will be woven together with others’ to collectively consider what memory is, the process of remembering, and why “things” hold a special place in our hearts.
Participant Criteria: Participants must be connected to San Bernardino County or the broader Inland Empire -- as past or present students, employees, residents, etc.
Requirements of Participation:
- An interview about one object saved from childhood that has sentimental value to you
- Your interview can take place at the university, over the phone, or via email
- We also ask that you lend your object to us for display in the Museum, along with your story
- Your treasure will be kept secure, handled to Museum standards, and insured while in our care (approximately March 2016-April 2017)
- You will have the chance to preview your story before it is displayed, and you will be invited to attend the exhibition opening
Sample Interview Questions
- In selecting an object for your interview, we ask that you review these questions to ensure that your story matches the needs of the present project:

- Can you describe the object you’ve chosen? (what it is, its provenience, when and how you acquired it, and what sort of role or roles it had in your childhood)
- Does this object remind you of anyone? Please describe the person, your relationship to the person, and why he or she is important to you.
- Can you share a few child memories you have about this item?
- Does it remind you of any particular moments in your childhood? (what happened and who was there)
- Are there any identifying marks on the object that came through use or wear that you can tell us about?
- Describe how seeing this object – or, possibly, holding or using it – makes you feel.
- Describe how the meaning of this object has changed for you over time (if it has).
- Why do you think you’ve held onto it for so long?
- Does this object remind you of any personal qualities or personality traits that you had when you were younger, or how these qualities and traits developed over time?

RANCHO CUCAMONGA COMMUNITY THEATRE PRESENTS
Have you ever been to a film musical and had the uncontrollable urge to burst into song? Ever wanted to know what it's like to be a T-bird or a Pink Lady but never quite felt cool enough to pull it off? Well, now is your chance to don those pink jackets, grease up those quaffs and let your inhibitions go for an evening where you are the stars.
The evening begins with a vocal warm-up before the show and suggestions for some appropriate heckles and accompanying actions. Then just sit back and watch Danny and Sandy, and the gang, while singing (and dancing) along to the lyrics on the screen. Grease is the word...
