It's already the final weekend of August.  It's also a busy weekend around Wichita.  Here's a list of events around this city this weekend.  Thanks again to Visit Wichita for so many fun things for us to do all year long.  Have a great weekend!



FINAL FRIDAY GALLERY CRAWL

AUG. 25, 2017

Time: 7-9 p.m.

Admission: Free to the public

Location: Various locations in downtown Wichita 

The Final Friday gallery crawl is a unique opportunity for thousands of students, families and art lovers to engage with local art each month at unique locations in Downtown and throughout the city. This grassroots event continues to thrive because of the collective vision and collaboration of galleries and artists.  As the name implies, Final Friday happens the last Friday of each month. Hours vary between galleries, but most are open during the core hours of 7pm to 9pm. Most galleries use Final Friday to unveil and debut new shows or as a closing reception. All venues are free and open to the public and several galleries incorporate artist demonstrations and/or live music. Not only does this event give guests the opportunity to view creative art space, it also is an excellent time to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork directly from artists.  CLICK HERE FOR INTERACTIVE MAP & LOCATIONS.

Greg is a man of middle age, a restless empty-nester, tired of his job in finance, looking for meaning in his life. Sylvia is an exuberant and beautiful lab/poodle mix, astray in Central Park, looking for a new home and Greg happily obliges. But his wife Kate, a busy rising star in the public school system, is looking forward to some independence now that the couple no longer has children to care for, and is less than thrilled by the clever and coquettish canine who jumps, slobbers, sits on her couch, and takes Greg’s attention away from his marriage. It is only when Greg is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice that Kate is able to see Sylvia not as a threat, but as a new member of her family. A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia is a smart, silly, sophisticated, and occasionally salty comedy about relationships, nature, and growing older. Call 316-265-4400 to reserve your tickets
