Corey Lyn Creger Memorial Gallery
Located on the main level of Paradise Center for the Arts as you enter the house left aisle of the Bahl family Auditorium, this gallery was established in April of 2011 in memory of Corey Lyn Creger, a Faribault High School class of 2007 graduate and freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Stout who was tragically killed when the small plane she was a passenger in crashed during a failed landing attempt at the Faribault airport on Sunday, November 25, 2007. Corey was a creative young woman who enjoyed art, music and theater. In her memory, this gallery serves as a student gallery in which students from our area schools are mentored by our Gallery Committee on the exhibition process and culminating on a six to seven week exhibit alongside emerging, established and professional artists.
