NORMAN — A slate of activities is planned for the monthly Second Friday Circuit of Art event, including a new program just for children.
The Second Friday Kid's Corner at Main Street and Peters Avenue will feature children's activities, snacks, art and performances by children. The event is presented by the Norman Arts Council in partnership with LWPB Architecture, and is designed to become a regular monthly feature.
The inaugural event will feature an art project in the style of Jackson Pollock, a water balloon toss, a cupcake truck and a show by an all-girl rock band from Sonder Dance, Music & Art.
This Friday's Second Circuit art walk begins at 6 p.m., with most activities concluding by 9 p.m., although some after-hours events are planned. Downtown art galleries, the Firehouse Art Center and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, as well as a variety of downtown businesses are participating.
Big Truck Tacos will set up shop next to STASH at 412 E Main St., as a new addition to this month's activities.
