Starry Starry Night features free, family friendly art project and movie
Once each January for the past 23 years, the city of Ormond Beach has celebrated art and culture with a Friday Night gallery walk called Starry Starry Night.
The 2013 edition of Starry Starry Night will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4.
The Casements Cultural Center will present the paintings of Carolyn Land in an exhibition called "Mindscape."
The Ormond Beach Historical Society table inside the Casements will show the video "Ormond Discovery."
Less than a block stroll from the Casements, the Ormond Memorial Art Museum will be exhibiting the abstract work of Antoinette Slick and Jenny Balisle in "Through the Layers: Two Artists Revealed."
The museum will also host its monthly Free Family Art Night between 6 and 7:30 p.m. Adults are invited to help the children in their lives create this month's project, a Dr. Seuss inspired Lorax pencil holder with trufulla tree pencil forest. (For Dr. Seuss novices, the Lorax speaks for the trees).
The drop-in class is free of charge and will take place rain or shine.
End the evening with an outdoor showing of the family-friendly movie "Dr. Seuss's the Lorax." The movie is free, at Rockefeller Gardens and is weather dependant.
