Our Grand Opening = A Thankful Celebration!

SHAMc ... we have been working on this building - this concept - for about four years. How many of you were part of the team that voted 3x every day to win the $50,000 Pepsi Refresh grant? Raise your hand if you attended HOLIDAZZLE or LuWOW

Who bought a Blinky or painted a sign post? Did you attend the groundbreaking ceremony and shovel dirt? What about the fence posts or mosaics? Did you help to create the panels that are now SHAMc's outer walls?

Gareth Asher, breaking ground.

Look how far we've come!

There is so much that went into this building - so much creative effort and hundreds of creative minds dedicated to being a part of the SHAMc Collective! Now it's time to celebrate!

Join us for SHAMsGivinGa weekend of Thanksgiving, SHAMc style!

Thanksgiving weekend, Friday, November 25, 12 p.m., to Sunday, November 27, 6 p.m., at the Safety Harbor Art & Music Center:  702 2nd St. N. Safety Harbor, FL 34695

What yummy dish will you create and share?

Bring a dish to share for our SHAMsGivinG Feast on Friday. (Times to be announced and we will be sure to edit them in to this post.)

Music will happen throughout the weekend and
The lineup includes:

Shaun Hopper, Victor and Penny, David Herraro, Brooke Ramel, Bing Futch, Aimee and Kurt, Hailey Steele, Urban Gypsies of Florida as well as our #SongFestFamily alumni:
Gareth Asher, Geri X, Daphne Willis, Ryan Montbleau, Emily Kopp, and

Multi-talented Kip Kelly is also in the musical lineup. Besides being part of the entertainment, Kip will bring a special Crooked Thumb SHAMsGivinG brew to help us celebrate!

There will be fun throughout the whole weekend. On Friday we will enjoy our SHAMsGivinG Harvest Potluck. On Saturday we will offer music, mosaics and mural painting. Stay into the evening and parade through the streets with us at dusk. You are encouraged to whimsically decorate and bring a Dollar Store umbrella, and wear a costume or your Blinky if you have one! Be sure to return on Sunday to participate in the community mosaic panel that will become part of SHAMc.  We are excited to welcome back MooNiE the Magnif'Cent to host Storytie and Safety Harbor Writers & Poets  will share poetry, open mic style. Oh, and we aren't going to tell you what, but we will have a BIG SURPRISE in store too!

You have been, or you soon will be, a huge part of our magic. Please come & help us celebrate.
