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, June 3, programming kicks off with First Friday visual arts events downtown at Peaceful Body Wellness Retreat, Team Employment, The Salina Art Center Warehouse and The Flower Nook. The two midtown FFNLive venues are Salina Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 901 Beatrice and CJ’s Creative Marketplace at 901 E. Crawford next to Key Rexall. The time frame during which all visual-arts event will occur is from 4:00- 7:00 p.m. this Friday.

The featured FFNLive concert performer that evening is Shawn Craver and Hullabaloo of Wichita, KS. Craver will play at The Art Center Warehouse immediately following an interactive visual-arts workshop on papermaking. Craver will perform from 7 to 8:30 p.m. inside the SAC Warehouse. He is an original singer-songwriter who draws from influences including The Cure and Bob Dylan. With a melodic and dreamy sound, Craver’s work features story-like lyrics about life, love and ” the existential journey we all find ourselves on.” Admission is free. Chapman’s Take Away food truck will be on-site near the Warehouse on Fourth Street, starting at 4 p.m.
