Take a "Friday Night Liberty" at Liberty Station This Friday!

Looking for a FREE art event this week? Look no further than the Friday Night Liberty in the NTC Promenade at Liberty Station. If this is your first visit to the NTC Promenade, then you are in for a treat! Friday Night Liberty is a monthly first-Friday evening of FREE open artist studios, galleries and events throughout NTC Promenade Arts & Cultural District. What kind of studios? Everything from oil painting to original fashion designs and photography. This month's event will mark the premiere of the Velvet Klaw Studio! That's right, you can visit NPCM member Velvet Klaw at the NTC's Barracks 19 building! Barracks 19 is the first of several buildings that are being renovated to create artist studios and gallery spaces. It's a great place with many events happening each month! The studio will offer workshops where you can learn how to screen print and will host the NPCM's monthly craft night events! In addition, there will be a retail area where you can find products from all the NPCM members and other artists. Get a sneak peak before the official Grand Opening & Reception on November 20th. While you're there, have a walk around to the other buildings and visit the Visions Art Museum, which features art quilts from nine countries, and check out the performing arts studios that feature music, dance, and martial arts. Admission to all the galleries and studios is free and there's plenty of free parking!
