(Salina, KS 08-16) Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, presents Friday Night Live---an entertainment series that began May 6, 2016. Friday Night Live is a series of programming for Salina residents and visitors designed to increase attendance and participation in arts-related events and to strengthen partnerships with local business owners in the downtown arts district.

On Friday, August 5, programming kicks off with First Friday visual arts events downtown at Peaceful Body Wellness Retreat, Team Employment, Sweet On You, Salina Public Library and The Flower Nook. The midtown FFNLive venue is Salina Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 901 Beatrice. The time frame during which all visual-arts events will occur is 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. this Friday.
