“We want to show people what happens at Culture Lab,” said Edjo Wheeler, executive director of Culture Lab. “We want to give them a taste of all the different folks that keep this wheel running.”

“There’s music, theater, dance, fine arts and a strong sense of community,” Wheeler added.

During the gala, Culture Lab will present three awards to prominent community leaders to honor their service.
