The Palmer Museum hosted "Art After Hours: Eric Ian Farmer + Friends" on Saturday, June 13, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the Palmer Museum Plaza. Guests were encouraged to pack a picnic dinner, bring a lawn chair or blanket, and invite their friends and family to enjoy a live performance by Eric Ian Farmer. Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina—but born in State College—Farmer is a local songwriter and singer, who keeps alive classics by artists like Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding, as well shares his own songs about finding one’s path in life, eternal love, and social awareness. Farmer was joined by State College area musicians Kevin Briggs, mandolin, Jason Crane, saxophone, and Andrew Jackson, congas. Complimentary ice cream from the Berkey Creamery was served. The museum galleries also stayed open.
