Gooooooood morning, Vietnam/Knoxville! We've got a nice Thursday ahead of us--don't want to go too crazy before METRO FEST TOMORROW! Anyway, here's what's going on.
At 10 a.m., the Emporium Center for Arts and Culture opens. Go check out Alex Merchant's "Looking at the Dark" exhibit. It's only there for one more day! Plus, there's no charge to go see it.
Got some kiddos who like storytime? Give yourself a break and head over to Smart Toys and Books at 11 a.m. There's no charge to sit and listen, and if you'd like more info, call (865)-691-1154.
KCDC is meeting at 11:30 at their office (901 N. Broadway). You can find the agenda and past approved minutes here.
Brent Thompson's Write Night starts at 6 p.m. at the Preservation Pub. Take it from me--it's a pretty cool show, even if you're not a writer. The people who read their work are alternately funny and poignant, and Thompson does great interviews with local writers.
Interested in how to repurpose stuff around the house you'd usually just toss? There will be an Eco Make and Take workshop tonight at Farragut Town Hall from 6:30-8:30. Sarah Brobst will lead the worshop on upcycling, which costs $20 to attend. Call (865)-966-7057 to register. Could pick up some handy skills!
Hey, ARTnews readers, deputy editor Barbara McAdam will be speaking tonight as part of the UT School of Art Visiting Artists, Designers, and Scholars lecture series. It's free and open to the public, and will take place in the UT Art and Architecture building.
Guess who else will be making a stop in Knoxville tonight? Amy Grant! She'll be playing at Maryville's Clayton Center for the Arts tonight at 8. Tickets to her show are $30-$45. Buy them here.
If you're up for a late night, the Milagro Saints are playing at Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria tonight at 10. The show's free. For the 21+ crowd only.
