Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts in Mineral Point, WI is a creative mecca for visitors from all over, an economic engine for our region and a community asset. Shake Rag Alley is a non-profit art school, hosting close to 200 workshops a year for adults, and a boisterous summer program for kids that offers about 40 classes. We are turning to the community for support; to help us offset the costs of repairs that have already taken place, and the larger landscaping project in front of us. Our goal is to have this money raised and the project complete by the end of the year.
