Spend this Friday night walking around Santa Cruz and experiencing all the wonderful displays First Friday has to offer! This April has many beautiful displays that are going to be showed around local businesses depending on what part of Santa Cuz you are in!
If you are going to be in Downtown Santa Cruz there are many galleries and artwork to check out just by a walk down Pacific Ave.
Tabby Cat Cafe ~ Lolo Lauren Jie-ye
Lolo Lauren Jie-ye is an amazing artist that shows the bond between a person and their pet. She takes the connection that these two creatures have and translates it into a beautiful piece of art. She studied at UCSC and taught locally to Elementary students about art.
The MAH ~ We’re Still Here
Santa Cruz’s Museum of Art and History is going to be displaying the Exhibition “We're Still Here” This Exhibit is sharing the challenges that seniors face in our community. Also bringing solutions to social isolation.
There will be an interactive activity where you can make a postcard for our local seniors in the area that the MAH will go take to senior centers.
While you are there you can enjoy Local music by Robby and Friends which is an upbeat Folk band that will be playing on Abbot Square!
The Claraty Arts Project
The Claraty Arts will be showcasing a show called “Are You Here” where they will be displaying the arts of their students. Come by and see art pieces that explore the life of the West Coast.
The Claraty Arts Project is a studio and gallery empowering adults with developmental disabilities and encouraging self-expression through arts education, training, expression, and production. Its purpose is to advance a new, collective identity for individuals with disabilities that transforms that society deems as perpetual learners into teachers and leaders, and those often labeled passive and permanent consumers into dynamic, creative contributors to a more equal and equitable world.
