Guitar

Do you dream of making it big as a musician? Do you enjoy singing or playing an instrument and want to share your talents? Or maybe you’re just looking for a fun, free weekend activity? Well here’s your opportunity!

The Provo Library is now hosting a monthly open mic night in The Attic. Every first Friday, join us at 7:00 on the fourth floor of the Academy Wing for Friday Night Live, a free evening of song by local musicians. If you’re interested in performing, sign-ups start at 6:30 pm. We provide the sound system, piano, and acoustic guitar, and anyone is welcome to participate.

The best part of Friday Night Live is that it’s totally free. Unlike many open-mic venues, there’s no cover charge for musicians or audience members, so bring as many friends as you’d like to cheer you on!

This Friday we’ll also be opening a new exhibit, The Image Hunter, in The Attic, so come a bit early to check out the artwork. In late 2015, Italian artist Hitnes embarked on a road trip throughout America with the goal of retracing the endeavors of John James Audubon to document all of the birds in North America.  

Audubon’s ambitious goal was to document all of the birds in the country, and these well-known drawings made up his book THE BIRDS IN AMERICA. Captivated by the enormous scope of Audubon’s goal, Hitnes traveled across the country, aiming to cover in three months what Audubon did in as many decades.

Along the way, Hitnes created sketches, paintings, murals, collages, and etchings of the beautiful natural scenes that inspired Audubon. This is one of the most stunning art exhibits we’ve ever hosted, so be sure to see it before it closes at the end of November. In addition to Friday nights, the exhibit is open Monday – Friday from 3:00 – 9:00 pm.

So, if you’re looking for a great date night, family activity, or just a fun evening for yourself and friends, join us this Friday, October 7th for Friday Night Live and fantastic art!
