Tonight is the night for the Full Moon in October. Celebrate along with others from 5 to 8 p.m. — enjoy live music, wine tasting, a cookout (hot dogs/chips), other sweet goodies at the Metal Arts Village, 3230 N. Dodge Blvd. (north of the NE corner of Ft. Lowell and Dodge) in midtown Tucson. We’ve been a few times to this monthly event, and it’s definitely a fun evening under the Full Moon.
There are eleven artists’ studios in this “village” with hand crafted sculptures, decorative home decor, gates and art for your landscaped yard. Some of the metal artisans do live demonstrations of their art during this event, so its like an open studio tour.
A creative sculpture garden is in front of this locale, with imaginative pieces in mostly metal, some glass & ceramics. And don’t overlook the charming coffee shop “Coffee Loft” that’s tucked in the heart of the village, with its extra upstairs loft seating.
I did report on that coffee shop almost two years ago when it was named “Spill the Beanz” (click here).
Next full moon events in 2012: Wednesday November 28 and Friday December 28.
