Recommended Stops for Your First Friday

There are a couple of art events happening this First Friday (tomorrow), that I'm quite excited to see! I think you should make time to check them out if you're in the Crossroads tomorrow evening.

Rainbow Town
First up, I want to tell you about Rainbow Town, a project with which my little sister is involved. It is an art show, but they'll also be showing a short documentary tomorrow and showing a documentary at 19th and Main Street in the Corrigan Building Parking Lot.

Rainbow Town is an effort "to garner attention and resources to send war-affected Liberian students to school." Part of the effort involves taking artwork made by the children who need funding, selling it, and using the funds to pay for the child's education. Here's the trailer for the documentary that will be shown from 7:30-8 PM:

America: Now and Here
This is a national art show starting in Kansas City with the goal to bring unity, creativity and positive dialogue about what it means to be part of the American experience. I've been hearing a lot about this show and I'm really interested to finally see it! (Although I'll actually be seeing it tonight at the opening party because I got an invite. Woo!)

America: Now and Here officially starts tomorrow at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, 2012 Baltimore Ave. Check out their website or watch this preview video for more info:
