2nd Friday ArtAbout

“Untitled,” photography by Tim Halling

2nd Friday ArtAbout is a monthly evening of art viewing and artists’ receptions at galleries and businesses in Downtown Davis and beyond.  All events are free and open to the public. Many include complimentary refreshments and opportunities to converse with featured artists.

The theme is “green” for the October 14 event: “Low Carbon Pathways to an Artful Life” – featuring eco-friendly art and encouraging patrons to walk, bike, ride their electric vehicle or take the train to the Downtown venues.  Promoting this same message, the Cool Davis Initiative simultaneously will host a special Downtown Electric Vehicle Cruise, showcasing an array of e-vehicles, from 5:15 to 6 p.m. Also that same night: The Cal Aggie Alumni Association will have its annual Pajamarino from 5:45 to 7:30 p.m. at the Amtrak train station, culminating with the arrival of alums by train for UC Davis’ Homecoming celebration and performances by the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh and Alumni Marching Band.  For more information, visit www.davisdowntown.com, or e-mail artabout@davisdowntown.com.
