Mid-day Art Break Continues at the Erie Art Museum by Ryan Smith

Wednesday, July 6

It’s the middle of the day in the middle of the week. Meh … damn slump.

But stop, look, and listen. The Erie Art Museum’s Fifth Street patio is where you’ll find your remedy: just the kinds of things – live local music, beautiful art, and some good grub – to get, and keep, you movin’ and groovin’ for the rest of the day and through to the weekend. A metro-Erie summertime lunch hour favorite happening every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m., the 2016 run of EAM’s Mid-day Art Breaks features short-and-sweet sets by highly talented local performers, along with free gallery tours from 12:30 to 1, and tasty vittles on offer from the museum’s Wave Cafe.

The series – which kicked off June 1 – continues Wednesday, July 6 with a set by Erie blues-rockers Ron Yarosz and The Vehicle, followed by a performance by local singer-songwriters/folk-soundscapers The Heliotropes on July 13.

From there, the series runs through Aug. 31 with a stacked schedule of live music for the lunch break. The museum hosts the events with funding and support from various local business sponsors.

Summertime and Mid-day Art Breaks are both well under way – and so is the work week – but there are still two months’ worth of good times to help you get over the hump. See you there. – Ryan Smith

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
