As summer arrives, the picturesque Notre Dame College campus will once again be the stage for the College’s fine arts show as well as several weekends of theatre.

Notre Dame College and the City of South Euclid have invited artists to display and sell their work at the second annual “Art on the NDC Circle” event on Saturday, June 23. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. the artists will exhibit their work on the Quinlivan Circle in front of the College’s Administration Building. Their artworks include ceramics, paintings, jewelry and much more. The event also features music, children’s activities and food.

For $15, guests can enjoy festive beverages and an Italian-themed appetizer buffet. Those interested can reserve their space by contacting the Alumni Relations Office at 216.373.6385. A spot cannot be guaranteed without a reservation.
