BLOOM hosts Chamber social event

Thursday, September 17, 2015

About 150 local professionals experienced the urban oasis that is BLOOM Collaborative when the healing arts and wellness campus hosted the September Business After Hours event, a monthly networking and social event put on by the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership.

Business After Hours gave BLOOM the opportunity to showcase its beautiful five-acre campus and picturesque Carriage House Studio.

Those in attendance got a chance to preview Blossom’s Clay Studio, BLOOM’s state-of-the-art work space and gallery that is set to open this fall. Blossom’s is located in a former Koehler Brewing Company keg storage facility that will soon house the largest ceramics studio in Erie.

Attendees also took in the former Koehler-Curtze estate grounds by following the Inspiration Trail, a guided tour that encourages mindfulness and meditation.

BLOOM Director Lee Steadman said a few words of welcome to guests and explained the mission of healing arts.

“We have a variety of different languages— arts, yoga, gardening, environment— that could help anyone have a better day,” Steadman said.

The event featured specialty beer from Erie Brewing Company and deluxe pizzas from Valerios. BLOOM also raffled off a Corporate Wellness Retreat.
