This month’s Second Friday ArtAbout has a little something extra to cluck about.

In honor of National Bike Month and Davis’ Tour de Cluck, this month’s theme is “Bicycles, Chickens and Agriculture.” In addition to the art and live music featured at the popular monthly event, May also includes a Tour de Cluck Tour d’Art scavenger hunt. Pick up a clue sheet at any ArtAbout reception to begin the journey. Bring a flock of friends to help because there will be prizes.

The ArtAbout is a monthly evening of art viewing and artists’ receptions at galleries and businesses in Davis. Receptions are free and open to the public; many include refreshments and opportunities to chat with featured artists, as well as live music and art demonstrations.

 

Five new venues join the lineup this month: The Avid Reader, Delta of Venus, Estate Jewelry and Gifts of Davis, First Street Real Estate and Haute Again Consignment. For more information, visit DavisDowntown.com or email ArtAbout@DavisDowntown.com.
