The film will be shown every 20 minutes. 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Watkins Museum of History, 1047 Massachusetts.
- Slash/Light: Open Studios – A transformative multi-media collaboration featuring 20 resident artists. With 18 artist studios, a music recording operation and collaborative space/gallery, the potential for creating at all scales is practically limitless. SeedCo is envisioned as a creative factory/laboratory with each of the resident artists bringing their singular artistic identity and prowess to expand and delve deeper into conception and production. 5:00 – 9:00 PM, SeedCo Studios, 720 E 9th Street #7.
On the last Friday of every month, all year long, from 5:00 to 9:00 PM, the streets of Lawrence erupt, storefronts convert into flash spaces, and performances and exhibits spill in-and-out of galleries and businesses. Final Fridays features activities for kids, exhibitions designed to challenge adults, music, dance and theater – most within walking distance of each other.
This month, there are at least 23 venues providing programs and exhibits in a range of media. An interactive and printable map and description of each event is available at the new Final Fridays webpage: UnmistakablyLawrence.com/Final-Fridays.
