 Spray Paint Galaxy Art Demo with Brian Frost
Saturday, June 8, 1:30-3:30 pm
Library Front Lawn
Watch local artist Brian Frost create beautiful space-themed art using spray paint on the front lawn of the library. He will also give away a piece of art as a door prize.
Brian Frost is a Florence-based artist and prop maker. Known on social media as Doc Voom, Brian has a passion for using spray paint to re-create images from the Hubble Space Telescope. His love of all things space can also be seen in his take on sci-fi and pop-culture art, but the stars are not the limit to his scope.

 Open Mic Night
Thursday, June 20, 7:00-9:00 pm
Colonnade
If you are a poet, story-teller, comedian, or musician and have an original or favorite work you would like to perform, this night is for you! Come hang out at the library and share a relaxed, creative space with other artists. Coffee and treats will be provided to fuel the creative energy. Please note that this event may include adult content.
