To get a tiny taste of what Fourth Fridays will feel like, check out these activities on Friday, September 30th as part of Culture Days!
The Guelph Tapestry
MacDonald Stewart Art Centre venue: at St. George’s Square from 5 to 10 in the evening
Contribute to the making of a tapestry that will reflect the spirit of Guelph and the people who live in the city. People are invited to bring fabric, postcards, letters, posters, and other flat personal items that they can donate to the project. There will also be felt and canvases provided so that people can create their own work that will be sewn into the tapestry. The tapestry will be sewn by volunteers as participants contribute.
From the Culture Days website:
Culture Days invites everyone to explore, discover and participate in arts and culture in every community across the country.
Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes”—and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.
10 Carden venue: 10 Carden St. 8-10pm
Information drop in for artists, performers, venues, interested community members. Listen to the delightful music of Michael Mucci and Ben Grossman (it’s a duo for 12 string guitar and hurdy gurdy) while sipping a drink, checking out the art on our walls and learning more about how you can get involved with Fourth Fridays!

Michael Mucci’s continued Takoma inspired acoustic guitar explorations have recently begun to incorporate the 12-string guitar. He will be joined for this performance by Guelph’s own electronics and vielle à roue player, Ben Grossman. The orchestration and interplay provided by B. Grossman on the vielle à roue sheds more light on the proceedings, making them greater than the sum of their parts.
