About the event: Art Local will not be any ordinary art show. We are will bring the community together with a two-day celebration of the arts! The Senior and Community Arts Center, located behind the Springfield Township fire station at 9158 Winton Road, will hold artworks from residents of the community and surrounding neighborhoods. On Friday, May 3 the event will kick off with an evening reception with artists and adults in the community. (21 and over event) Wine, cheeses, light appetizers and live music will fill the evening and give neighbors a chance to mingle and enjoy the art. We will unveil the plans for a permanent gallery space, which will be located inside the lobby of the Senior and community Arts Center and we will recognize our sponsor(s). The second day will be family friendly with a mini parade, crafts for various ages and children’s performers.
