Look for the Art Roundup e-list each week, a service of the UA Department of Art and Art History. We hope to provide a more or less comprehensive list of free exhibits and visual arts events in West Alabama (*and sometimes a wider net, esp. if West Alabama folks are showing), with hyperlinks. Follow the links to get more information. To send your exhibition info, unsubscribe to this email, or to change or add an email address, please email: Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thank you for supporting ALL of the arts all over West Alabama!
