Location: Bemis Center | 724 S. 12th Street
Description: You are invited to Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts for a day of creativity and artistic inspiration! Join us at noon to celebrate the reveal of our new brand identity with a light brunch and champagne toast. Bemis members will receive a limited-edition tote bag featuring the new logo and artwork by Bemis exhibiting artist Claudia Wieser––available to those who join before or at this special occasion only! Beginning at 1 p.m., attendees can then visit the artists-in-residence and curator-in-residence in their studios; view their works-in-progress; and discuss art, life, and their Bemis residency experience. A local artist will lead an all-ages, hands-on art activity and guests can explore the current exhibitions.

Free and open to all. Free parking available.

RSVP

Join us after Open House / Open Studios for Liv Schulman: The New Inflation!
