YEAR-END GIFT TO PRICE CTR GIVES BACK TO COMMUNITY ALL YEAR LONG

If you’re planning to make a year-end gift to a local charity, giving to the Price Center is a great way to give back to the entire community. Financial gifts help sustain operations, repair equipment, and/or help underwrite any number of the Center’s ongoing free programs, including seven dance classes offered each week, regular musical performances, art activities, workshops and more. Since the early 2000's, the Greater San Marcos Area Seniors Association (GSMASA) has operated the Center as a non-profit, low-cost, no-cost community center that is now a major downtown hub for public and private events focused on celebrating the cultural and performing arts of San Marcos and beyond “Selfless

COMMUNITY PEACE FLAGS ADORN PRICE CENTER, SHARE MESSAGES OF HOPE & INSPIRATION FOR HOLIDAYS

Thanks to an interactive community public art project that kicked off last month, more than 100 Peace Flags are being strung and hung inside and outside the Price Center for the holiday season. In addition, daily visitors are encouraged to make flags of their own to add to the unique art installation. Local artist and project leader Cathy Sparks oversaw the first work session that produced more than 50 flags now adorning the main columns outside and sewn to strings between the ceiling lights in the 1893 Chapel. Individuals and groups have continued making flags during visits to the Center over the past weeks and they will be strung and hung as well. The goal of the growing display is to sha
