A Look Ahead At The Week’s Art&Seek Picks


by Therese Powell 28 Feb 2018

Mark your calendars. There are some great Art&Seek picks coming up this week.

CTA TBD

Welcome the merry month of March with one these cool picks from your friends at Art&Seek. If you’re feeling like a lion, take in a Broadway musical. For those of you who are in more of a lamb-like mood, choose an area museum or an intimate gallery.  Outgoing or introspective, there’s something for every taste and mood.
