This Week: October 13-19

As usual, there are plenty of art related events this week to keep us busy in the Queen City.

MONDAY

Mondays can be tough, but art can make it all better (and some of us have the day off too, which doesn’t hurt). Head to the McColl Center for Art + Innovation tonight from 6-7:30pm for their Wine Club. At tonight’s event, you will have the opportunity to try (and buy) six different Sonoma California wines while learning more about 11-month affiliate artist, Austin Ballard.
