An Afternoon of Art and Architecture

Galena and the surrounding area is well-known for many things. History, beautiful landscape, and mom & pop shops all come to mind. But to fully experience a place, you must experience its culture and there is no better way to do that than through art and architecture.

Visit four of the best inns in Galena, tour their parlors, and enjoy some of their homemade snacks. Each inn will feature two or three local artists and their work which will also be for sale.

Chat with the innkeepers, meet the artists, and experience their art and architecture for yourself.

Saturday, November 16, 2019
2pm - 5pm

*Tickets are $20 per person and may be purchased at your first stop.  Advance purchase not required.
