Destination Arts Downtown Allentown

What a night for an art crawl! There will be three gallery openings in one evening for the Destination Arts exhibition event. Hans Moller‘s “Modern Color” will be at The Baum School of Art, located at 510 W. Linden Street. William Hudders‘s “Botanical Reflections” will be at Gallery on the Walk, 21 N. Seventh Street.  And at Gallery 724, City Center’s own Dave Meyers and Andrew Robertson will have their show “Harmony / Dissonance” on display. There’s also Late Night Shopping at The Shops at City Center on Thursdays, so you’ll be able to check out the merchants in and around these arts venues as well.

This program runs through October 16, 2016, and is free and open to the public.
