A2 Art & Brew to Benefit Ann Arbor Art Center

BY BTL STAFF

On Sept. 28, visit some of the best downtown Ann Arbor bars and restaurants and taste well-crafted beer and bite pairings to see how different craft beers and foods work together. While enjoying the beer and bites, see select pieces of the Art Center's exhibition "In Transit" through a virtual reality app. Afterwards, vote on your favorite brew, bite, and pairing during the A2 Art & Brew and the winner(s) will be announced following the event.

"In Transit" is a moving exhibition featuring the work of current Washtenaw Community College photographic technology students presented in four unique contexts, curated by WCC faculty. The moving, pop-up nature of this exhibition features artwork displayed inside the entire fleet of AAATA buses as well as in spaces throughout the Ann Arbor area, from Ypsilanti to Scio Twp. The exhibit runs from Sept. 15-30 at the Ann Arbor Art Center, 117 W. Liberty St. The opening party is Sept. 15 from 6-9 p.m.

The Alley Bar will host a special September edition of Straight Up the same evening as A2 Art & Brew, which, in collaboration with Pabst Blue Ribbon's PBRART contest, features local artists inspired by the PBR brand, live music, and drink specials all night long.

Participating venues include Aventura, The Beer Grotto, Conor O'Neill's, Isalita Cantina, Mani Osteria, Old German and Pretzel Bell. Tickets are $45 and non-refundable for the event from 7 p.m. - 2 a.m. In order to attend, you must be 21 years old. For more information, visit http://gaybe.am/Kl.

Horses' Haven Provides Humane Care for Majestic Creatures

The Horses' Haven in Howell welcomes anyone who has ever been moved by the grace and nobility of a horse to volunteer their time to help the non-profit agency carry out their mission. Providing humane care for aged, abused, unwanted, rescued and neglected horses, ponies, donkeys and other large animals is the agency's priority. This includes horses with owners who can no longer afford to keep them.
