Calling all hepcats, dangerous dames, and daddy-os! Create a work of art inspired by the hair of the 1940's: any type, any medium, any style, and any size (as long as it can fit inside the salon). All ages are encouraged to participate. The top 7 winners will have their artwork displayed inside the Beehive Salon from July 1 to August 22, 2015, and will be a part of the 2nd Friday Art Walk on July 10th. 
This Month on the ArtWalk:
Live & Local on 140 West Plaza

The 140 West Plaza in the heart of downtown Chapel Hill is the host of the Live & Local music and art series every spring and fall on Friday nights. Live music, hands-on-art, dance performances, and more are all free. On Friday, June 12 from 6 pm to 9 pm come listen to the BarHop String Quartet; a quartet of classically trained musicians with a passion for branching out & exploring new genres for string quartet. They take the audience by surprise by exploring the worlds of jazz, rock, blues, and funk... all while performing on strings.
