Upcoming Events for October 2023

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone coming out to Art in Park! 

As we head into Fall, we have many exciting things happening, with our Dia de los Muertos events already underway, Latin Jazz this Monday Oct 2, an a big multi-generational art exhibition at Hermon Hall on Sunday Oct 7.

We’d love to see you!

Yours & Mine

Please join Alee Peoples and friends Sarah Staskauskas and Ben Redgrave October 7th for the opening of Yours & Mine — a multi-generational art show that we’ve been working on for a while!  Nine artists invited a family member (or two, or three, or four!) to exhibit alongside them, reinforcing our given and chosen kinship’s influence in our lives.

Street parking is limited. Rideshare and Metro encouraged.
