ITA Looks Back at its Most Momentous Milestone
After successfully strategically maneuvering over a row of summer hurdles and making the move up to 2130 Green Bay Road, ITA was set and ready to open its doors to the community for its Grand Opening on March 8th. Evanston Mayor Steven H. Hagerty was in attendance to cut the ribbon, which was graciously offered by the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.
The event was attended by community members and professionals alike, who all had the opportunity to tour the new premises, specifically built out for the special requirements of the creative arts therapy services. Throughout the event, visitors moved from room to room, conversing with ITA personnel who lead demonstrations of art, music, drama, and dance/movement therapies. These live demos provided the guests firsthand experiences with the constituents of each modality that are typically unavailable to the public.
Also in attendance was ITA Founding Director Marilyn “Toddy” Richman, who saw for the first time the finished Drama Therapy room named in her honor.
ITA would like to thank its therapists, staff, and interns, the Evanston Mayor’s Office, the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, and everyone who stopped in to our building on March 8th to help make our Grand Opening and 2018 Annual Open House a great success and a benchmark for next year. We hope to see you all at our next open house!
