Arts Trust Opens House Inside and Out


Arts Night Out and the Northampton Community Arts Trust host a festive open house on Friday evening, June 13, 5-8 pm at 33 Hawley Street.

The public is invited to party inside and out. The Bistro Bus will be serving up street food in the parking lot, while the Salvation Alley String Band will be in the house, serving up its own special mix of honky-tonk, bluegrass and rock and roll.

Visitors will have the opportunity to tour and view plans for the building, currently in transition from fitness center to affordable creative space for the community. The informal evening promises “artsy surprises” including ticket giveaways to this summer’s Green River Festival.
