Our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide has tons of things to do over the next few days, from exhibition openings and closings to virtual happenings and many other ways to support the neighborhood arts...

Please note that the current situation has a lot of businesses adapting quickly. Hours listed here may not be exact and are subject to change at any moment. Please check in with a business before visiting in person and be patient and understanding if hours differ from those here or a space has elected to change their reopening strategy. And be sure to always wear a mask in public, in businesses, and while on public ways with others. Wash your hands frequently and remain properly distanced. Always respect a business' customer limit, health practices, and hygiene requirements.
