The Masur Museum of Art invites the community for an evening of relaxation at its bi-annual  "pARTy 318" event on Thursday, September 22.

"Everything is free with the exception of food," said Evie Stuart, director of the Masur Museum of Art. "We will also have some art vendors there as well so I'm sure everyone will find something they like."

Stuart says attendees will have plenty of food options to choose from. Food trucks will be on location with tasty treats.

Ben Hickey says the museum will feature new exhibits and many of the continuing collection.

"There's some pretty intense hungry, hungry hippo games that happen," said Hickey, curator of collections and exhibitions. "We have cards and we're rolling out a huge checker board."

There will be live music and plenty of activities for everyone. 

"We're also going to have a local artist there doing a live demonstration of his work," Stuart said.

Masur's current exhibition features contemporary art and will be on display during the event as well.

The Masur Museum is located in a historic home that was built in 1929. It was donated to Monroe in 1963 as a fine arts museum.

Party 318 is taking place at Masur's museum, located at 1400 South Grand Street in Monroe. It starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.
