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.

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 p.m.

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
