Salon Series Performances at Art Works
The mission of our Salon Series is to challenge, broaden, and expand your notions of art and performance. Most Salon performances are an hour long and are followed by a 30 minute Q&A session with the artists. Your paid admission grants you access to the performance and to the up-close-and-personal peek into the artists’ creative process.
Our 2019 Salon Series kick-off event is Friday, February 8th, 2019.
