In partnership with the SouthSide Art District’s First Friday celebration, join us for a community celebration of democracy in all its forms. In addition to the exhibition of original photographs on display in the LUAG Main Galleries, view reproductions of key works along the South Bethlehem Greenway, listen to the audio guide, meet community members and representatives, register to vote, and create a customized political poster or button. The first 100 individuals will be eligible to win free LUAG Swag. There will be individually packaged drinks and snacks available free of charge. Community partners include the SouthSide Arts District, Made by Lino, Lehigh University Community Service Office, the Lehigh University Student Politcal Action Coalition, Hawk the Vote and more.*
