Hickory – The Backpack Bash, Engaging the Arts to Remedy Local Hunger is today, September 5th, from 6 to 8 pm. The Backpack Bash is family-friendly and FREE event for the entire community. Coffee is being generously provided by our friends at Tasteful Beans, activities for kids, and free food will make this inaugural event for Backpack Program a ton of fun for all ages!

The main gallery of Hickory Museum of Art, located at 243 3rd Ave NE, Hickory, is hosting our exhibit displaying over 20 ‘bags’ made into works of art using all kinds of materials! The bags were all beautifully designed and crafted by community members. Come visit the gallery September 3-5 to vote for your favorite bag. The exhibit will conclude on September 5th with the Backpack Bash Social, a FREE evening of refreshments, music, and fun children’s activities.
