On the Friday edition of Lubbock's First News with Tom and Laura, Tonya Hagy from the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) joined us in the studio. She informed Tom and Laura about some of the highlights and must-see attractions for this month's First Friday Art Trail.

The Glass Alley has a new roof and is open again, and Hagy said it is a venue that everyone will enjoy visiting. Tornado Gallery is hosting a "life-needs" event called Feed Seniors Now. Visitors will be given bags that they can take home to decorate, then have them displayed during the show in October, where they can be viewed and will be filled with food for needy seniors. "We love to see when the arts positively affect people", Hagy said. Among many others highlights, she also mentioned the Peach Tree Gallery, where visitors can see a new exhibition.

Art lovers may attend First Friday Art Trail on the first Friday of every month from 6 PM to 9 PM. A free trolley service connects all of the downtown venues. Parking for the trolley service is available at the Buddy Holly Center, LHUCA, or drive themselves to each location.

The First Friday Art Trail also has an app for mobile devices, that includes contact information, times, and a map of the vendors. If visitors tag photographs with "#firstfridayarttrail" on Instagram, the photos will become part of the app.
