OAC Challenge: 30 Days of Creative Wellness

Register by July 30
By Lynda Wheatley | July 24, 2021

August is coming, and the Oliver Arts Center is offering a unique challenge to keep Northerners from sliding into an end-of-summer slump. For the next 30 days, commit to embrace the arts — visual, literary, wellness, and more — by doing something creative for 30 minutes each day. Read or write, run, walk, bike, meditate, do yoga, boat, color, garden, cook, play, music, or karate chop — it all counts, and it’s all for a good cause (raising money for OAC programs and operations.) Interested? You have until July 30 to sign up. Once you do, OAC will let you know when you can pick up your registration swag bag (if you’re participating from afar, they’ll even ship it). Each week, participants who complete their 7 days are entered to win door prizes provided by Frankfort area merchants, and anyone who sees the challenge through to the end of August will get a celebratory award and be entered to win a grand prize. Register (kids under age 18, $10; adults $25, families $75, business or other teams of 6 $125 plus $20 for additional team members) at
