Attendees are welcome to bring their lawn chairs, relax and listen to the live concert that begins at 5 p.m.

Admission to the show and concert is free. Some of the framed artwork will be available for purchase: $28 for one or $50 for two (cash or check only). Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase art supplies for next year.
