This month's First Friday will be a mighty special one: it’s an interactive art show on the intersections between agriculture and the environment, featuring
Gallery exhibits of multiple local artists and the Friends of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks visiting artist Deborah Burian;
A paint-by-numbers style mural that attendees can help paint;
Free tapas, including vegetarian and vegan options, from Chala’s Wood Fired Grill;
For those of legal drinking age, beer and wine provided by a licensed server;
An all-original open mic from 6:45-8:00 p.m., with environmental themes especially encouraged; and
Live music from award-winning local roots duo, Old-Time Pharmaceuticals, 6:00-6:45 p.m. and 8:00-9:00 p.m.
The event is hosted in partnership among Cruces Creatives, the Meetings for Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture (MESA) Project, Friends of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks, and the Art Gallery at New Mexico State University. The evening is funded through a grant from ArtPlace America.
