READING, Pa. - The GoggleWorks in Reading is shining a spotlight on the arts with a free monthly program.
The Spotlight Night is usually held on the first Friday of every month.
It highlights local and visiting artists and typically hosts two exhibit opening receptions.
"We also pepper in artist talks and demonstrations related to the exhibitions or visiting artists. Sometimes have musical performances," said Nova Harris, Marketing Director for GoggleWorks Center for the Arts.
The event is also an open house to allow folks to see everything the center has to offer.
"I think they should take away that we not only provide exhibitions and things, but I think in terms of like our demonstrations and walk in workshops and hands on activities," added Harris.
The family-friendly event is free with a few exceptions for some walk-in workshops.
The goal is to get folks of all ages in excited about the arts.
"I think it's pretty dynamic. I really love the age range that we get like you probably saw in there.
There are kids running around and families and I think that's probably the best part," concluded Harris.
