Event Description

The Holland Center, a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing arts, education and community in the Desert Foothills region, will celebrate the Halloween season by presenting its inaugural Glass Pumpkin Patch from October 16-18, 2020, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. The event will feature more than 1,000 whimsical, vibrantly colored glass pumpkins handmade by Gregory Tomb, an acclaimed local glass artist known for his unique, intricate designs. The pumpkins will be available for purchase, and attendees will also have the opportunity to gain hands-on insight into the craft by participating in glassblowing classes. Proceeds from the Glass Pumpkin Patch will benefit the Desert Foothills Theater, which presents high-quality productions for the North Valley community. The Holland Center is currently seeking volunteers and sponsors for this fun, festive event. As a current Artist-in-Residence at the Holland Center, Tomb is excited to share the joy and beauty of glass art with the Desert Foothills community. Located in North Scottsdale, the Holland Center is a unique partnership dedicated to celebrating arts and culture, treasuring the desert environment, assisting those in need and encouraging lifelong learning. Formerly named the Foothills Community Foundation, the Holland Center provides a diverse array of programs, including classes, fine arts exhibits, and performing arts through the Desert Foothills Theater, the beneficiary of the Glass Pumpkin Patch. As a community theater, the Desert Foothills Theater invites participation from people of all ages — from budding young artists cultivating their talents to senior citizens seeking a creative outlet in retirement. The Holland Center is located at 34250 N. 60th Street, Scottsdale, Ariz. 85266. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Holland Center does not receive any funding from government entities and is proud to rely exclusively on the generosity of donors.
