Creating with Big Brothers Big Sisters
Are you interested in the good work that this organization does in our community? Then come say hello as one group of Littles and their Bigs learn about the importance of caring for the environment while getting inspired to create several works of art based on the Cortada exhibition. If you’ve ever wanted to volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters, now’s the time to stop by and see what it’s all about!

Ekphrastic Slam + Brunch
What is an ekphrastic you say? Can you really slam while eating? Why not? Ekphrastic means writing about art and so for this event, visitors to the gallery can write poetry, flash fiction, monologues or any genre inspired by the “90N: North Pole Installations + Florida Is…” show by Xavier Cortada. Writers will then read their pieces slam-style for a people’s choice award. Door prizes and prizes for the winners of the slam are all provided. Mimosas, beer, wine and light brunch available. Tombolo Books will be on site with a pop-up bookstore!
