The Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, a 501(C) 3 nonprofit Arts organization, holds its 12th Annual Magnolia Party, on Thursday April 26, 2018, at 5:30 pm. This event is a fabulous fundraiser supporting the ongoing preservation and maintenance of the historic, landmark Victorian structures that house the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center; located at 9 & 12 Vassar Street in Poughkeepsie, NY.

This year’s Magnolia Party again features live music and the festivities start with wine, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a gallery exhibit by local artist Penny Dell who will be on hand to talk about her work.

What if there was a place you could hear a brass quartet ensemble, participate in a poetry slam, learn to move to the Salsa beat, see Shakespeare’s work come alive, view a vibrant watercolor exhibit and sip tea in a Victorian parlor? What if all these opportunities and more were housed in two 130 year old landmark buildings in the middle of a neighborhood undergoing a renaissance; where galleries, restaurants, other historic sites, the railroad station and the majestic Hudson River are only blocks away?
