2nd Friday ArtWalk This Week!

2nd Friday ArtWalk 
Friday, September 9
6 pm to 9 pm

17 venues in Chapel Hill and Carrboro on this week's 2nd Friday ArtWalk including our newest venue The Elvis Shrine at Cameron's! If you haven't been there before, this is the night to stop in and send Elvis your prayers (and enjoy one his favorite foods...donuts!).  

Another fantastic space to experience is Art&  at the Ackland Art Museum. Is it a coffee spot, a gallery, a co-working space, a hang-out? Yes and...enjoy a talk by artist Derek Toomes as he discusses his installation.

The ArtWalk is a great opportunity to experience the creative arts scene in our community, explore venues, and socialize with other art lovers. Buy local art in all mediums; handmade jewelry, scarves, paper goods, ceramics, fine art, and more.
