Thursday Night Live!

Thursday Night Live!

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day – Cedarhurst stays open late until 8 pm every Thursday.The museum converts the back patio and lawn into a third space, giving the community members a place to gather, network, and enjoy the beautiful southern Illinois summer and scenery. Thursday Night Live is a no-pressure way to engage first time visitors of “non-art folks” to gain appreciation for the arts and learn about the many different programs that we offer year round.
