With Mardi Gras approaching later this month, the Red Rock Arts Alliance will be hosting a New Orleans themed art party next Friday. Arti Gras will feature a night of festive art, beads, food, and drinks. There will also be contests for mask-making and brightest costume. Entry will be five dollars. The event runs from 6-9pm next Friday at Art 101. All proceeds go to the Red Rocks Arts Alliance.
