Artist & illustrator Lisa Cogdon will be in town for an artist talk on Friday and we hope you will join us for the very first Creative Mornings @ Night on Monday.

Art is always free in Greensburg // Did you know that admission to The Westmoreland Museum of Art is always free? A reminder that this weekend is the end of Greensburg Craft Beer Week.
