Every first Thursday of the month, the city of Riverside hosts its “Arts Walk” celebration. During this monthly celebration, museums, galleries and art studios open their doors to the public.
The celebration planned for the first Thursday of October, however, will be a little different.
This week, Riverside launches the first ever Long Night of Arts & Innovation, an event showcasing some of the best Riverside has to offer. Members of Riverside’s business, university and arts communities will take part in this special evening. More than 130 exhibits will be set up in downtown Riverside. The 24-page event program includes information about art demonstrations, theatrical performances, musical performances, presentations for entrepreneurs, and a long list of interesting conversations led by faculty from local colleges and universities.
Conversations such as the one led by Dr. Jodie Holt, UC Riverside botanist and consultant for the James Cameron movie ‘Avatar’. Dr. Holt will present Do you ‘see’ plants? Raising Plant Awareness through Art, Science and Media at the
UCR California Museum of Photography from 7:30 – 8:15 PM.
The Long Night of Arts & Innovation will take place this Thursday, October 4 from 6 PM – Midnight. This event is free. All are invited!
