Back in the day, Rockford was known as an artistic town where many craftspeople plied their trades in the shops and sold what they made or created. Today, there are still many artists in residence and the town is known for its love of culture and the arts.

On Wednesday, February 17, a gathering of some of Rockford’s artists took place at Arnie’s to celebrate the birthday of one, Michael Callihan, and enjoy the company of old friends.

Organized by Phil Glass, the mid-winter coffee break was a treat for all with ice cream and a specially designed cake for the event.
