Voices From the Warehouse District 11 — Don’t Miss It!

STREETS

It’s that time of the year again: Voices from the Warehouse District is right around the corner!

Runde Auto Group is a proud sponsor of the 11th annual event, which runs Sept. 12 – Oct. 2.

This year’s theme is STREETS, with a goal to “bridge the gallery with the streets, highlighting a once subversive art movement,” according to the Voices website.

Events, including an artist walk around, drum workshop, live music, a chant workshop, span the entire month.

To see a full schedule of events, as well as photos, and information about the artists, visit http://www.voicesgallery.org.
