Art Alliance members and artists Rick Avery, Mary Vollero, and Nancy Brassington will have joint shows the State Theatre and the Downtown Improvement District Office May–June. See their shows as part of First Friday, this Friday, May 6 from 5:30–8:00pm.
First Friday is a local community event in downtown State College.
A casual atmosphere features art, people-watching, mingling with friends, shopping, and dining at the diverse and delectable State College restaurants. First Friday goers will experience after-hours access to galleries and shops, free bites and beverages, live music and entertainment, retail and restaurant specials, and more. And there’s free parking in the Pugh, Fraser and Beaver garages with validations from participating merchants.
