Speaking of the UofM, maybe head back on Thursday to the other side of the river when all of the many different performing, musical, visual arts and more that live on the West Bank in the U’s Arts Quarter get together for a mixer. Swing by both the indoor and outdoor spaces off to catch everything from an aluminum pour to custom totes from Bohemian Press printmaking to a variety of photo and visual arts exhibits to sounds from Audio Playground and Electro Pop Rock Marimba. Plus the festival has food trucks parked in the middle of it for your dining needs! 6-9 PM. Free. —Deacon Mahoney
