Cultural Art Happenings July 2013 
A special thanks to all of the organizations, volunteers, festival registrants and our wonderful sponsors for making CALF 2013 such a success. We have had great feedback and Walter Wick could not have been more gracious in his remarks regarding how much he enjoyed his exhibit at the NCCIL, "Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic" (which is a must see) as well as the festival. I hope you've picked up a Seymour Passport and cycled around to the various venues to find the six Seymours!

The art organizations don't seem to take a break in the summer. There is an amazing array of productions and exhibits opening this weekend and throughout the month including The Paramount Players "Young Frankenstein", Abilene Christian University's Shakespeare Festival, Abilene Community Theatre's "Moon Over Buffalo", and McMurry University's "Monty Python Spamalot" . Other art offerings in July include the ever popular CarWalk, the Center for Contemporary Arts artist exhibit, "Off Your Rocker, and the Grace Museum's Works on Paper from their permanent collection. So many great art little time!

Artfully Yours,
