It's always fun to visit local museums and take in the art collections, but sometimes you want a more casual experience. Enter Berkley Art & About, a monthly event that turns downtown Berkley into a gallery and performance space. During Art & About nights, Berkley businesses host an artist or performer. Fine artists set up an area to display and sell their work, and performing artists play music or do theatrical performances. It all becomes an evening of art, music and food, plus the chance to explore the great things Berkley has to offer!
The next Art & About event is Friday, August 11, and it's taking on a scavenger hunt theme. At the start of the event, the Berkley Art & About Facebook page will post five clues. You can find the answers hidden in local Berkley businesses. Take a selfie at each business with the answer to the clue, upload your selfies to the page, and you might be the random winner of four premium Detroit Tigers tickets. So art, Berkley, food, and a classic Detroit sports experience? Sounds like a ... (wait for it)... home run idea to me! (I'm going to pretend you are all laughing at that one ;) ) If you play, let us know what you think!
