Halloween may not be 'til next week, but the final Friday of October is already here, giving us one more party to attend before the monster balls and Halloween bashes.
On Friday, October 25, visit The Saguaro for a special opening reception of its Final Friday Art Installation. The Saguaro's art makeover will feature works including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and mixed-media set up throughout the hotel's lobby, pavilion, and restaurant.
Curated by Michael Slenske, this installation will feature the works of 15 local artists, including Andy Brown, JB Snyder, Michael David Little, Sarah Hurwitz, Geoffrey Gersten, Ashley Macias, Alison Wilkinson, Joel Kidwell, Abbey Messmer, Robert Frasier, Kittim, Paulski, Zachary Dean Glover, and architect Bob Wilkinson.
While the early artist reception at Distrito from 6:30 to 8 p.m. is invite-only, the remainder of the evening is free and open to the public, with food and drink specials and music by DJ Sean Watson.
For more information or to check out some of the featured artists, visit The Saguaro on Tumblr.
