The Pratt Fine Arts Center will be hosting their bi-annual One Hot Night event on Saturday, September 19 from 6 to 9 PM. This free open house invites the public to witness artist demos and participate in family-friendly activities. It is a wonderful opportunity to speak with instructors, explore the studios, and learn more about what upcoming classes are being offered. Special discounts on Pratt classes will be offered to open house attendees.

One Hot Night’s five different artist demos will include printmaking, woodcarving and a live bronze pour. Artist Debora Moore will be giving a glassblowing demonstration, in conjunction with her current exhibition at the nearby Northwest African American Museum, Debora Moore: Glass Orchidarium, on display through November 8, 2015.

In addition to Pratt’s demonstrations, the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Acts (SANCA) will be performing and Ezell’s food truck will be onsite to provide tasty fare.
