Arts on holiday: To do this weekend

Posted By on Wed, Jul 3, 2013 at 5:28 PM

From the listings desk: It's a long weekend (kind of), and it wouldn't do to just stay at home, would it?

(Yes it would. But anyway ...)

Here you'll find a look at the July Fourth events, but this blog is devoted to all the artsy stuff happening this weekend (and hey, it's all free). So, without further ado:

First Friday Downtown, a ton of gallery openings at spots like the Modbo and S.P.Q.R., Boulder Street Gallery, Colorado Expressions and Kreuser Gallery, with live music at Studio Bee and the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Fri., July 5, 5-8 p.m.

From Lindsay Hand, a piece from the Modbo and S.P.Q.R.s Scoot show.
