Enjoy Beer, Wine, and a stunning Art Gallery curated with works from more than 50 talented
local Artists. This will be the first of three gallery installments over this Summer.

the program Eight Arches for Eight Artists. The incredibly beautiful mini murals will activate the
space where windows used to be before the mall renovations in the 1970’s.The Art Gallery is
free and open to the public.
The IOOF Hall at 1504 Market Street is located on the reopened streets and is the oldest brick
structure in Downtown Redding, we are excited for more Art opportunities and experiences to
be held here!

up-and-coming Summer galleries.
As always, The Art Hunger strives to showcase and nurture the local art community in a safe,
all-inclusive space and to host events and experiences the public will enjoy. The Art Hunger will
