From quilts to movies, Rexburg Cultural Arts has a full calendar of events in March.
From March 10-14 the Rexburg Tabernacle is hosting a quilt show to celebrate the city’s 139th birthday. Tickets are $4 for adults, and $2 for children, and include admission to the Museum of Rexburg. Rexburg Cultural Arts Director Jed Platt says anyone is welcome to submit a quilt for the show.
“I think everyone has a connection to a blanket or quilt,” Platt said. “We’re all a little bit Linus… maybe it was your baby quilt or a quilt that you received when you got married or was made out of your concert T-shirts and you received it as a gift when you graduated high school.”
The quilt show is accompanied by a blanket drive for the Family Crisis Center which runs through March.
This month’s Throwback Thursday movie will be shown on March 24 at the Romance Theater. The Throwback Thursday Movie Series gives members of the community the chance to reminisce. This month the movie will be “The Man from Snowy River.” Platt says residents requested the film.
“We’ve had several requests,” Platt said. “I think my memory from that is the soundtrack and how awesome it is so I’m excited to see that again.”
Private events are also scheduled for this month including TEDx Rexburg at the Romance Theater on March 12 and Finding Light in the Darkness, a fireside by Tim Ballard at the Rexburg Tabernacle on March 27.
Platt says that Rexburg Arts welcomes those who want to rent the city’s venues, such as the Romance Theater and Tabernacle.
