On Saturday afternoon, stroll downtown Lafayette and make sure you stop in at Artists' Own and the LaLa Gallery & Studio, who are featuring special exhibits. The Art Exhibit: Personas y Portales de Cuba y Guatemala is being presented at Artists' Own, which is an exhibit with a distinctly Hispanic flavor. Two photographers, Al Knight and Dwayne Daehler present photographs of Cuba and Guatemala, countries they respectively have visited. The Lala Gallery and Studio is hosting the Art Exhibit: What Looks Can Buy. Artist, Owens has created 30 paintings, each exploring tension, color, texture and shape. The series was inspired by his visit to Europe.
For the third year in a row, Wolf Park is partnering with the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra for a special outdoor performance, Wolf Park Presents: Howling Mozart After Hours! This Saturday, June 8, from 7:30 pm to 11 pm, enjoy a night of entertainment at the LSO performs the music of Mozart and other classical favorites by a string quartet. Will the wolves 'sing' along? You will have to head to Wolf Park to find out! The Howl Night program will take place, but it will be in two parts, with the music in between. Come for the whole night, or just a little while. There is something for everyone at this special event. Bring along your own chairs or blankets to enjoy the performance, and then move to the grand stand to see the wolves in their habitat. Finish the evening with a stroll around the park- a flashlight might be in order this month! Also, enjoy some fresh popped corn or your own sticky marshmallow roasted on a campfire.
