Tucson Art After Dark 2023
What is Art After Dark? This fun program provides different entertainment each month. For July, come watch the Barbea Williams Performing Company perform their Afrikan and Afrikan Latino choreography. They even teach guests how to do some of the dances themselves. Audience participation ranks high on the list for Art After Dark, too. Your kids create their own works of art based on the theme of the night. Even though these activities were created with children ages 5 to 8 in mind, they really appeal to the child in all of us. And it costs you absolutely nothing but a couple of hours of your time to participate. However, the memories created are priceless. So, make this your destination of choice with your family on the second Saturday of each month. You won't regret it.
Don't forget. Throughout the month of July, more than 20 businesses in the 4th Ave District will be participating in the Where's Waldo Challenge. First, visit the library or Antigone Books to pick up your passport. Then, visit the businesses in the 4th Ave District. Make sure to scour every nook cranny, and shelf for the 6" cutout of America's favorite striped shirt and beanie-wearing Waldo. When you find him, let the employees know. They'll stamp your passport. Once you receive 20 stamps, you become eligible for a fun prize. It's free to participate and a great way to get to know our local businesses and business owners. The challenge ends on July 31st, 2023.
