Artists are arriving on Tuesday! Jairo has repeatedly told us over the years that he loves snow, and it looks like the weather has been listening.  A taste of snow on Tuesday and then Wednesday Spring like weather at last (crossing fingers!)

Come kick off Spring with us on April 20th at the Winspear.
