Post-Kentuck, Pre-First Friday, There’s Still Plenty of Art in West Alabama

Art Roundup from the UA Dept. of Art and Art History: today is Wednesday, October 16, 2019. Lots of ongoing shows still out there, in case you’re feeling a little low after Kentuck Weekend. Thanks to William Paul Thomas for our featured image. Send us your visual arts events — we want to know what you’re up to. This list is updated throughout the week on this page.
