FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH
6:30 PM
SCRANTON CULTURAL CENTER



From the desk of Laureen Maloney, Head of the Lackawanna Children's Library:


Please join us this Friday September 7th 6:30 at the Scranton Cultural Center for the First Friday Art Walk.

Under the guidance of Liz Kluesner, our children have created some wonderful abstract art pieces. This is the second time the Children’s Library has been a part of the First Friday Art Walk. The first was August with the sidewalk chalk drawings. Now we are taking it inside thanks to Stefanie Bush of the Cultural Center. We are legitimate!

Thank you,
Laureen
