Happening in July
The heat is coming at us fast this month. Luckily, there are several happenings at the UA that might offer some relief until the monsoon arrives.
First, you can enjoy lunch at No Anchovies while learning about how your college or department can participate in 2017 International Education Week. If you're looking for family-friendly events, check out Art Sprouts, a fun storytime and art-making event for kids ages 2-5. Or join the Poetry Center for a free screening of short films that are sure to please both kids and adults.
For those who want to explore and learn something new, there is the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory's Open House. To get your art fix, attend the opening reception for the "Visual Delights and Fanciful Flights of Imagination" exhibit.
