The second annual Huntsville Arts Week may look a little different this year. What doesn’t? Since many of us in the Arts Community have had to get creative with their offerings, this Huntsville Arts Week will offer events but also focus on shining a light and celebrating the amazing Arts Community in Huntsville October 17-25! Some activities will be virtual, but there are also activities for you and your family or “quaranteam” to get out and get involved in the Creative Side of Huntsville!
Here is just a sample of the creative, family-friendly events that you have to look forward to in 2020!
