Come celebrate the Grand Opening of a new TURN Community Services Art Center in Springville, and find refuge at Oasis! The Oasis Art and Learning Center serves as a daily gathering place for people with developmental disabilities to learn new skills and create together. The Oasis staff empowers people with disabilities to grow and deepen their sense of identity through art, adventure and learning activities that include: 

 Drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics
 Music, voice, movement, and dance
 Writing, film, theater, improv, and photography
 Participation in cultural events and community activities

On Wednesday, September 25th, visitors to the Open House are encouraged to stop by anytime between 11am and 1pm and meet the people who produce art at Oasis, explore their artwork, and enjoy live music and lunch. The Ribbon Cutting will be at noon, with local civic leaders and royalty, including Miss Utah and Mr. and Miss Inspiration. Come be inspired by people who overcome significant obstacles every day and produce magnificent creations in the refuge of Oasis!
