“Well, we are reopening today!”, said Pump House Director John Payne. “Stop in and see all of our improvements! The First Capital Rotary with James Hill as its President, helped out by granting us $1,000 towards our projects. Our front entrance, restrooms, and main gallery have a fresh coat of paint and look great thanks to Copp Renovations! We had a good year in 2021 and our board allocated over $3,800 towards the project.”

Payne continued by saying “We have a strong board working together for the arts, with Mike Throne as President, Mark Trainer and Angela Young as Vice Presidents, Jade Berry as our secretary and Dave Reider, Jarrod DePugh as our treasurers to serve as our executive team. We have a new floor in the front entrance and restrooms through the Herrnstein Family Trust ($4,000) and are working on funding for our floor in the gallery and gift store ($20,000). We hope to have that completed this year. We have an architecturally significant building to showcase the talented artists in our area. We thank the community for your support.”

The Pump House Center for the Arts in Chillicothe’s Yoctangee Park, is open Tuesday 11am-4pm, Wednesday 11am-4:15pm, Thursday and Friday 11am-6pm, Saturday 11am-4pm and Sunday 1pm-4pm.
