Things are Happening in Delaware!!!

Please join us the 3rd Friday for a gallery talk with many of the featured artists in the CAC July exhibition: "Hello Science". These artists are making work that is intermingling art with science. The work is very diverse and thought-provoking, spend an informal evening with the artists and learn more about what goes into their work, pose questions, and engage in thoughtful dialogue surrounding the works. The months slip away quickly, so don't miss your chance to see this fantastic exhibition with the bonus of interacting with the artists themselves. Feel free to bring a beverage and or snack to share!!!

Other things happening in Delaware this Month:
Second Friday at Dusk, Main Street Delaware & Sustainable Delaware are presenting a superb documentary: The Economics of Happiness behind the BeeHive Bookstore between Sandusky Street & Franklin St. Bring your own chair and dryer sheet (suggested to keep the bugs away). Popcorn & Whit's Frozen Custard will be available for purchase.

Columbus-Based Band (but originating in Delaware): Ugly Stick will be performing at the Backstretch Friday, July 8...their sound is described as "cowpunk", you can't miss this!

Saturday, July 16 from 9-3 pm in the Northwest Neighborhood (downtown to the fairgrounds approximately) is FREE-CYCLE Day! This is a great opportunity for everyone, but especially artists!!! The residents of this neighborhood will be setting out good-condition items in their lawn to give away for free to someone who could use them. Eliminate unused items from your home! Reduce landfill expansion! Get to know your neighbors! Save money! Note: there is a printable sign to stick out with your items to signal to others that the stuff is free for the taking! See the link to the Sustainable Delaware website.

Speaking of Recycling!!! Our next exhibition " A History of Everything and Nothing" by Susan Li O'Connor will be opening Friday, August 5, 2011. Susan is collecting clean, paper/cardboard for recycling in her site-specific art installation. Please donate your paper-based recyclables to the CAC this month and you too can be a part of the "history" of this project! We will also need some volunteers to help out the first week of August with the installation. Please contact Jessi: if you are interested & available in the evenings of August 1 - 4.
