Sioux City Art Center plans a week-long fundraiser of ‘Pure Imagination’

When organizers were planning events for the Sioux City Art Center’s week-long fundraiser, development coordinator Erin Webber-Dreeszen drew inspiration from a famous “Candy Man.”

“As soon as guests walked through our doors, I wanted to dazzle all of their senses,” she said. “I want them to feel like they’re walking into ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.'”

That is the concept behind “Pure Imagination: A Week of Delights” — a seven-day fundraising event for the 225 Nebraska St. art center, running Saturday through May 7.
