Welcome to The Whirlybird Compound! We’re thrilled to have overcome the challenges of recent years and to once again be hosting unique cultural and artistic events and activities. Some of our recent cultural & artistic events include our traditional Pre-Blackpot Camp Throwdown, hosting a film crew for an exciting Cajun French/English feature film called Pointe Noire, written by our friends Pat Mire and Rebecca Hudsmith (Pat directed) and co-creating and hosting the Blown Away on The Bayou Blues and Harmonica Summit with Grant Dermody.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be hosting Jim’s Art Shows at The Tower Gallery, where you can view Jim’s watercolor and charcoal portraiture, his Mandala Photography and his Folk Art Prints. We will be curating a new show, collaborating with other local artists, and starting an online art gallery to reflect Jim’s work in The Tower Gallery. Come by to see our “folk art-chitecture” structures and check out some of Jim’s Folk Art Prints and his Mandala Photography – his “Profane to Sacred” project. If you’re interested in visiting The Tower Gallery, please email Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment and for secret directions and parking instructions.
We have a rich history at The Whirlybird Compound, and if you have time, you can read all about it and see many videos of activities on our website, thewhirlybird.com and thetowergallery.org.
We believe in the power of family and friendships, and the idea for the Fan Club came from friends, first, as a way to help us clear the debt we owed to our friend for returning the building to us and then as a continuing effort to support the artists who collaborate with us to create all the cool events. We’re grateful for the support of our community and look forward to continuing to bring cultural and artistic experiences to The Whirlybird Compound.
