Art on Tap is being revived jo-muell
Updated: 2014-02-15 10:33:18
For the price of a membership, young adults and those young at heart can enjoy an evening of art, food, beer and music on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, when the Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin rekindles its Art on Tap. Now a biennial event, it originated in 2009 but has had a two-year hiatus. The event is set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Spiva's Main Gallery.

Live music will be presented by The Too's, a four-piece alternative folk band with a distinct Missouri sound. The group plays original music with influences ranging from Radiohead, Tom Petty and Led Zeppelin to Jim Croce, Vince Gill and James Taylor. Having played at venues in Joplin and Fayetteville, the band is now booking gigs in Kansas City, Tulsa, Springfield and Columbia. The Too's have gained radio air time not only on station 103.5 in Joplin but also on Nashville, Tenn., station WLAC.

For those already holding memberships the event will be free, but with a suggested $10 contribution at the door. Otherwise, admission for people 21 and older will be the cost of a membership, which is $20 for students with an ID; $30 for educators and working artists; $35 for individuals; and $50 for families.

Food for Art on Tap is being provided by Sawmill BBQ and beer by Missouri Eagle LLC. Additionally underwriting is provided by Mense, Churchwell and Mense PC. Also featured will be drawings for a stereo speaker tower and an artist-made cigar-box guitar or beer-can guitar from Wood and Wires Guitars.

Memberships may be purchased in advance at Spiva or at the door. For information, contact Spiva at (417) 623-0183. Spiva is located at 3rd and Wall in downtown Joplin.
