Friday, April 8, 7:30-8:30pm
Sad Vicious with Scott Vermiere and Steuart Pittman
Don't miss live drawing and/or painting by local rock band Sad Vicious!!! Sad Vicious will either draw side by side as a sort of "live drawing meets rock band meet and greet" or exhibit a new form of performance never done before in which Sad Vicious plays rock guitar music and paint splatters the images of artistic, social, and political icons on a wall!!!
Saturday, April 9, 3:00-4:00pm
Phobianimation with Samara Halperin
Participants will make flip books of their phobias... from eggs to spiders to bridges. This will be a fun way for people to share their phobias and make something good come out of them.

The Fictitious Art History Lecture Series with Seth Murchison
