Three Days of Art, Art and More Art... May 2010 First Friday and Beyond...

That time of the month has arrived when there is so much happening in the arts that I cannot even keep up. Besides what is happening in 18b there are lots of activities happening throughout Downtown. So instead of posting a really long post about all the "goings on" I am going to post a few links so you can navigate the activities yourself. 

In addition one of Downtown's newest attraction opens up this Friday. Emergency Arts on Fremont and 6th Street will be having their soft opening at 6pm so please make sure to stop by and say hello to all the artists that have taken residency in the historic J.C. Penny Building. Also please visit Nevada Public Radio to see other listings that are happening throughout the community. 

With all this said get out there and get yourself enculturated.
