3 Things to Do around Shawnee: June 4-6
Looking for something to do in Shawnee and wondering who you're gonna call? How about the Ghostbusters. Or maybe snow cones at the raceway or art exhibits are more your speed. Whatever you enjoy, there's a wide selection of events happening in Shawnee this weekend. Here are a few:
Appreciate the arts: The Impressions of Nature: Roberto Ugalde exhibit at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art continues through June 20, and at 7 p.m. Friday, Ugalde will be at the museum to speak about his work. All are welcome to listen to Ugalde speak, and the event is free. Ugalde was classically trained in old master's technique at the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes in Queretaro, Mexico, where he was born. He emigrated to the United State in 1994. Ugalde drips industrial oil paints on a horizontal board and manipulates them into impressions of nature. The museum resumed normal hours this month, and admission is free through August. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays and is located at 1900 W. MacArthur. For more information, visit www.mgmoa.org.
