Art Show/VigilFriday, November 2nd from 4:00-7:00pm
The Murphy Center is proud to host the First Annual Art Show/Vigil on Friday, November 2nd, from 4-7:00pm. The exhibition continues through Nov. 16 during open hours at the center - 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. Entitled “Endless Struggle,” the event will be an opportunity for local artists experiencing homelessness to exhibit their art as an expression of remembrance and respect for those we have lost. In addition, we have chosen the second day of Dias de los Muertos (The Day of Dead) in a tradition of honoring the many amazing individuals who have died while still homeless in Fort Collins over the last few years. Please join us as we remember and acknowledge the members of our community who are homeless. There will be complimentary refreshments as well as a chance to meet the artists.
