A group of local artists are planning to open their downtown studio to the public on third Thursdays for a new, live art event called Art Night.

As the first and only magician ever to win NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Mat Franco takes an innovative approach to magic-making that’s driven by pure joy. Almost entirely self-taught, the 29-year-old Rhode Island native began developing his own shows before the age of ten and took the stage at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas by the time he was 15. With an improvisation-fueled and humor-laced performance style partly honed through his years as a hugely in-demand college act, Franco is now currently headlining his own show, Magic Reinvented Nightly, at the LINQ Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas that offers both boundless fun and a stunning sense of thrill and wonder.
