Next Friday from 11 am to noon at the Courthouse, you're invited to the Kick Off Event for the Philadelphia Museum of Art Inside Out Program, followed by a walking tour of 5 of the exhibits. The Inside Out Program is placing reproductions of famous works of art around the Delaware Valley. Norristown has been selected to host 11 of these works, which is really exciting. I'll post more next week about the program, but you can read about it at this link.

Next Friday is also Fourth Friday. Jazz on Cherry and Salsa on Cherry will host events as usual (I'll post details next week), but as of this date, I haven't heard from any of the other venues. If you know of Fourth Friday events for next week, leave a comment below, or send it to me through Facebook and I'll publicize it. Otherwise, if no one shows up at your event, you've only got yourself to blame.
