Along the way, preview an excerpt from local dance company Of Moving Colors's adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest, featuring live music by violist and composer Christian Frederickson. Also open for viewing will be A Work in Process: Paintings by Gustave Blache III and It's Academic: A Hands-On Art Experience. Complimentary wine and appetizers included with admission.
