The Mill District

In our third episode of "So Ask Us." we chat with Arielle Jessop, our artist in residence. She's recently begun a mural project in The Mill District, highlighting local authors through portraits done by local artists, and she has also consulted on and created other public art works that will soon be on display.

Join us next week, Wednesday the 27th at 11 AM as we continue our series of conversations with partners, business owners, and friends of The Mill District! <3
