Friday night at the Palo Alto Art Center


The Palo Alto Art Center, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, is taking inspiration from scholar Edward Norman Lorenz's 1972 paper by presenting a new exhibit, "The Butterfly Effect: Art in 1970s California," this fall.

The free exhibition, featuring painting, photography, sculpture, video, collage, assemblage and printmaking, opens Friday, Sept. 16, with food, drinks, music and art-making activities. There will also be an opportunity to meet the artists, including Carol Summers, Elaine Badgley Arnoux, Bill Owens, Fletcher Benton and many others.

Attendees are encouraged to sport 1970s-inspired attire.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. The Palo Alto Art Center is located at 1313 Newell Road.
