Get "smart about art" and join us for Art Flix at the Barn, a series of FREE movies about art and artists hosted by Dave Laug upstairs in our newly renovated Loft. Each month, artist and educator Dave Laug selects a movie or documentary about artists, art collecting or art history from his vast movie archives. Dave is your host for the evening, providing the introduction, a scintillating post-movie discussion, and fantastic door prizes. BYOB and enjoy light refreshments while mixing and mingling with fellow art-lovers before the movie starts. The big Barn doors open at 6:30 pm and the film will start at 7:00pm. Donations gladly accepted for more great art programs at The Barn!
