Looking for something autumnal to kick off your weekend? You could do worse than Poor Yorick's annual open studio Friday night.
The point, of course, is to buy something to support the struggling artists who rent studio space at Poor Yorick's. But besides some edgy and affordable art—you will encounter Big fun. Quoting from the official postcard:
"Art! Food! Drink! Music by the Red Rock Hot Club! People all dressed up like decent folks!"
Don't believe that last part. We go to P. Yorick's open studio ever year and enjoy it without stooping to dressing like decent folks.
Note: If it's your first time at Poor Y's labyrinth of studios, prepare yourself for navigating a crowded corn maze with art on the walls by the likes of Sri Whipple, Thomas Atkins, Grant Fuhst, and Stacy Young—only without the corn, dust and itch.
Friday, 6-10 p.m.
Poor Yorick's Studios, 126 W. Crystal Ave. (2500 S.), South Salt Lake. www.pooryorickstudio.com.
