Join us on Thursday, November 15th, from 6-7:30 PM for a night of inspiring conversations with Jeff Krisman! Jeff Krisman has been interviewing artists and those in the local community on his podcast for almost two years. These conversations are an "opportunity for him to hear their stories, life journeys and lessons learned along the way, and their visions for the future."
Throughout the evening we’ll hear from Tom Spanier, an artist and partner of Around Town Art LLC and Topher Owen, the Creative Director of the The Space Improv group and BRD Jazz Trio.
