Upcoming events (4+)

Art Galleries @ First Friday Art Walk (w/o host)

FM Art Gallery

Update: I won't be hosting this time as I have a foot injury and can't be on my feet for long periods, which this event requires.

For Art Murmur, come explore the art galleries on 25th street, grab some drinks afterwards, and most importantly - socialize and have a good time!

Meet at 7:00-7:15 at the entrance of FM Art Gallery at[masked]th street and then move on to the other galleries on 25th street before having drinks at a nearby bar. Websites for the various organizations are below.

Hope all who attend have a great time!
