Thanks to February being the shortest month of the year, another Final Friday is already here.
There’s a lot of options when it comes to galleries, so I’ve organized the listings by neighborhood.
For Final Friday first-timers (or veterans), I’d recommend the galleries on Commerce Street, as well as the venues in Old Town, including CityArts.
Personally, I’d recommend Kody Ramsey’s show at the KU School of Medicine, the annual KMUW mug art release party and what sounds like an interesting urban-planning exhibition at the Fisch Haus.
A reminder: Wichita’s Q-Line trolley will be in service from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. along its scheduled route downtown. For a map of the trolley’s route, click here.
