ACFA Potluck

ACFA — the Ajo Council for the Fine Arts — invites everyone to gather for a potluck in the lobby next to Art Under the Arches Gallery in the Plaza.

Bring a dish to share, your plate and cutlery, and whatever beverage you’d like to enjoy.

And! If you’re in a playful and creative mood, dress up as your favorite movie character. (Or not. It’s up to you.)

Never heard of ACFA? This is a fun way to learn about this creative group. It includes artists and actors along with people who enjoy music and theater. Some like to attend events, others offer to help with promotion and behind the scenes jobs. If you’re curious, come join us!
