Donor Spotlight: Nina Ferraro, Highmark Sr. Community Affairs Analyst

For the first time in ten years, Mid Day Art Break has a new name!  The Erie Art Museum is proud to host Highmark Mid Day Art Break! Highmark purchased the naming rights to this much loved and anticipated summer long concert series that has been the buzz of the summer lunch breaks for a decade.

Every Wednesday starting June 7th through August 30th the museum’s 5th street patio will feature a free live music performance from noon until 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to stop down to enjoy the sounds of summer, have lunch at the Wave Café and take a free gallery tour at 12:30 p.m. or 1 p.m.

Nina Ferraro, Highmark Sr. Community Affairs Analyst is excited to partner with the museum for this community experience.  She said,  “It’s a wonderful opportunity to support the Erie Art Museum and bring the community together to celebrate the best of Erie’s arts and culture.”

Highmark Mid Day Art Break gives people the chance to take a break in the workday to walk to the museum, enjoy the music, socialize, and witness art in all forms.

Free to the community, Highmark Mid Day Art Break offers an exciting lineup of some of the most talented musicians in our area over thirteen Wednesdays this summer!

Heat up your summer with a Highmark Mid Day Art Break at the Erie Art Museum — every Wednesday. Supported by Erie Insurance, JET 24/FOX 66/, Connoisseur Media, Times Publishing Company and Erie Reader.
