3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury | August 20, 2021 – WATER WORLD
RAIN PLAN ANNOUNCED – EVENT SCOPE REDUCED
Vendors will be located on the Plaza only, and water activities will not be held, but many indoor activities will continue as planned! Local rock band The Queen’s Bishop will now play on St. Peter's Street - with a perfect balance of musical genres just like your favorite variety station.
Salisbury Art Space will host the opening reception for its 2021 Members Exhibition. This annual show shines a spotlight on the talents for Salisbury Art Space’s ‘most valuable players’: its members! The show has been sponsored by The Whaley Family Foundation and judged by Salisbury University Fine Art Professor Jinchul Kim. Winners will be announced during the opening reception to be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Additionally, the work of Jinchul Kim will be on display in the Foyer Gallery, and the work of U.M.E.S Sequential Arts Professors Elvin Hernandez and Bradley Hudson will be on display in the Robinson Gallery. Salisbury Art Space is located on the lowest level of the Salisbury University Building.
Blackwater Apothecary will be open, with a special labradorite sphere and lotus stand giveaway, and an interactive art installation titled “Letters to the Lost: Letters to the Living” in conjunction with Wicomico Goes Purple. The community is invited to participate and contribute, to help shine a light on the opioid crisis and the resources and hope that is available. Blackwater Apothecary is located on the second floor of City Center Building.
Due to the threat of rain, The Mane Event will now take place inside The Brick Room. The Mane Event is a special fundraising and awareness event, where local long-haired women will be auctioning off sections of their hair to make wigs for those with medical hair loss in honor of the memory of Ashley Gilkerson.
The Mane Event will donate locks lovingly chopped by Edit Hair Salon to Hair We Share, and all proceeds will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Ashley’s preferred charity.
SBY Movies on the River will be cancelled for the evening, and North Division Street and E. Main Street from Main to Court Street will remain open to traffic.
The 3rd Friday’s virtual event on Facebook will continue to share event and community highlights for those who choose to continue to social distance.
3rd Friday is a downtown economic development initiative and a project of the Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District, in partnership with The City of Salisbury. For More Information: 3rdFridaySby.com
