— The Seligmann Center at the Citizens Foundation will host "Old Bones and Broken Stones: A Prehistoric Seisiún" this Sunday, Dec. 10, beginning at 4:30 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

A seisiún is an informal Irish gathering of music and community.

This modern take on the tradition blends contemporary approaches to art with historic Celtic themes. This coming Sunday, celebrate the culture, experience new works by regional artists and view our solo exhibition by artist Greg Slick before it's closing date.
