Friday Night Live
Live art. Live music. Good people.
Friday Night Live is a monthly event that brings together live music and live art. Each event features a live music performance from a local artist. During the performance, featured artists create visual art inspired by and responding to the music. The work is auctioned off by a silent auction taking place throughout the evening. Join us for the evening as we explore the relationship between visual art and music in our beautiful spacious Duke Gallery set up cafe style.
