Erie Museum of Art Hosts Highmark Art After Dark Event

A musical series continues at the Erie Art Museum, giving the community a chance to see the art galleries and enjoy local live music.

Thursday’s musical series will be a special event as it will be the last time David King’s Time Travel exhibit will be on display, along with “Made By the Lake” cabinetmaker exhibits.

“David King is an original artist from Cleveland. His works speak a bit about how memories have faded. They’re based on old family photographs and film reels,” said Eric Dye, marketing director of the Erie Art Museum. “He takes a little bit of it and then draws a scene around it. They are therefore very interesting pieces, very bright and colorful. It’s really great if you haven’t had the chance to come and see them.

Doors open at 5 p.m. Visitors can tour the Glass Growers Gallery, The Dollhouse at Pointe Four, and Primo Tailoring while enjoying a drink before Shoefly Soul takes the stage from 6-8 p.m.

“We also have artists coming in for our ‘Made By the Lake’ carpentry show, they’ll be here to meet and greet everyone and talk to different people and talk a bit about their process,” Dye said. “We also have a brand new gallery that just opened last week, named among many migration stories featuring Pittsburgh-area photographers.”

Admission is free for museum members; $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.

The following Highmark ART after DARK the event will take place on Thursday April 7th. Dye said that with the success of the event, the musical series will continue past April.
