We’re taking over!

Come on out to the State Street Marketplace on Feb. 22d, and get involved in our Art Takeover!  From 4-8 PM, we'll be enjoying drinks and food from the local vendors in the marketplace, including Monkey Fist Brewing Co., who will be donating $1 from every beer purchased, and Wren the Butcher, who will be donating 25% of proceeds, back to Arts for All!
