This Friday, Nov. 3 is First Fridays in the Arts District. The festivities get started around 5 and go until 11 p.m., depending on the venue.

Here are a few highlights:

  • InLight returns with a theme of “Reflection and Refraction” between the 200 and 400 blocks of West Broad.
  • Explore the fiber art underway at Mob Studio (205 E. Broad St.) from 6 to 8 p.m.
  • The Basement is hosting a grand re-opening with free burlesque performances starting at 8 p.m.
  • And Dim Sum opens in the former Max’s on Broad space, serving up small bites from 4 to 10 p.m.

Bonus: Head over to Jackson Ward for the premiere of a multi-sensory show called “New Ways to Scare Children.” The exhibition will explore the fears and future of AI in creative settings. It’ll be on display until Sunday, Nov. 26.
