WHO WE ARE
The Cadiz Community Arts Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community arts center. We are not a collecting museum, but focus on bringing quality art, in all its forms, to the community. Programming includes 8-10 exhibits each year by artists from around the local area, region, and the world representing a broad variety of media and genre. We produce at least one theatrical offering per year, and offer classes and workshops in several disciplines.

MEET JOHN SECOR
John Secor will read from his new poetry collection, “Boomerang Girl,” and Kala Dunn will perform original pieces on the flute.
“Boomerang Girl” is a series of new poems about love and loss, friendship and transitions, looking backwards through time and outwards to new horizons, always trying to say more by saying less.
John Secor, a native of Poughkeepsie, NY, was raised in Toronto, Canada, and studied at Hobart College in Geneva, NY, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and in Strasbourg, France. His teaching career took him to Washington state, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and frequently to Paris in summers. Always interested in words and language, Secor has written poetry in English and French. Now retired from Morehead State, Secor lives in west Kentucky, where he continues his enthusiasm for long walks, soccer and singing.
Kala Dunn is a 2006 graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy (in Michigan) with an emphasis in flute performance. Dunn is a 2010 graduate of Murray State University, and has also participated in numerous summer programs including the Brevard music camp (North Carolina) and the William Bennett summer program at Austin Peay University. Currently pursuing a Masters in English at Murray State, Dunn works at WKMS-FM and still finds time to play piano and flute.
