Currier to Host Art-Themed Block Party

Jul 21, 2017

Outside the Currier Museum this Saturday evening, you’ll find live music, chalk drawing, face painting, and something called an “art battle.” Five food trucks will line the streets, and when twilight sets in, a parade will start.

The museum is hosting an event called "Twilight at the Currier."

It's part of a new focus by the museum on community engagement. Karen Graham, the Currier's deputy director, says the museum has been looking for more ways to have people visit in a casual setting.

“We really want to open our doors to all of our neighbors and the surrounding communities, and it’s certainly the first time we’ve done something of this size.”

The block party will kick off at 5:00pm and go until 9:00pm.
