Got two minutes? Get your portrait done Friday

Posted March 27, 2016

Once gift card is valid for purchases at a number of downtown Raleigh merchants.

Friday is the first Friday of the month, which means it's First Friday in downtown Raleigh when galleries, museums and restaurants are open with special hours or deals.

It's a fun night for both adults and families, who are looking to do something a little different. I wanted to spotlight this unique opportunity:

On Friday, the N.C. Museum of Art and the downtown shop DECO Raleigh will team up to offer Get Drawn at DECO: First Friday with NCMA. It's 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday, in the tiny park (called a parklet) outside of DECO, 19 W. Hargett St.

You can head over there where Raleigh artist Kiki Farish will draw your very own two-minute portrait. Drinks and snacks will be available. The event celebrates the art museum's current exhibit: Marks of Genius: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Museum of Art.

It's free!
