Highmark Mid-Day Art Break is Back!
Join us every Wednesday from 12:00-1:00 for lunch, live music, and art. This year will be extra cool because we’re jamming inside. The Zaphiris Family Patio will be hopping with a live music feed, giant connect four, and street chalk for kids (and adults). Don’t want to brown bag it? Grab lunch at the Whole Foods Co-op Café housed in the Museum’s lobby. The best healthy affordable option in downtown Erie.
