Civic Center Eats

Submitted by Callie Sumlin on Mon, 04/27/2015 - 9:55am

Kick lunchtime boredom to the curb at Civic Center Eats, an outdoor gathering of the city's best food trucks. Listen to live tunes from performers like Jeff King and Owen Kortz and enjoy delicious eats and sips from your favorite mobile food vendors, including Manna from Heaven, Jessie's Smokin' Nola, and Quiero Arepas. Shaded tables and an on-site ATM make lunching al fresco cool and breezy. A portion of the proceeds benefits Civic Center Conservancy, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring Civic Center Park. Tue, Thu 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Reacting to 21st-century information overload, the artists in this exhibition create work by experimenting with analog processes, like chemically treating photo paper (Mariah Robertson) or layering textiles (Lauren Luloff). With additional paintings, photography, and sculpture by artists Analia Saban, Tim Hawkinson, and Bart Exposito, this exhibition begs us to slow down and remember the deliberate practices that were once common in the creative sphere. Tue-Sat noon-6 p.m.
