AIP is open to the public, the admission fee is $5 and complimentary refreshments are served. The first and last half hours are devoted to socializing and community building.  The program runs about an hour, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

 

 

Through the artistic eye art is pervasive. People who don't see things as art are not looking artistically. Lance will talk about how he arrived at art as a career, hiscreative process, his life experiences and the difference between a calling and a distraction. He will also explain why he creates labyrinths.
