Our Neighbor: Daystar Center

One of our neighbors at 1550 S. State is the Daystar Center.  We thought you might like to get to know them. 

A new educational and cultural hub is opening in the South Loop.  The Daystar Center, located at 1550 South State, will provide a variety of activities for people of all ages.  Beginning March 7, classes, lessons, and special events will be offered in music, arts, crafts, dance, film, languages and yoga.  All are invited to an Open House on February 26th at 10am.  During the open house, the music teachers will perform a concert and attendees can try out mini-sample classes.

According to Executive Director Steve Vryhof, the Center is designed to make a difference by making connections – between generations, between people and ideas, between groups and institutions, between needs and resources.  The specifics of programming, says Vryhof, will be determined by public interest and participation as the new Center grows and develops.

The Center is also a venue for professional development, offering courses, conferences, lectures, and workshops in areas such as education, business, and counseling. The Center partners with other nonprofit organizations at 1550 South State to make their building an anchor in the neighborhood for the enrichment of community life.
