Radio Cavalcade: April 8th

Mercury Theater was helmed by Orson Welles and is most widely known for its production of “War of the Worlds. Their version of this Sherlock Holmes mystery is adapted from the stage play by William Gillette that was based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character. Mercury Theater’s script was penned by Welles and based largely on “A Scandal in Bohemia”, as well as a mixture of elements from other Holmes stories. It once again pits Holmes against his nemesis Professor Moriarty as the sleuth works to unravel a tale of scandal and blackmail.

DoMo Walls Coming October 6th

An annual Downtown Modesto mural festival that happens every October! DoMo Walls was envisioned as an expansion of Fasm Creative Battle, a mural festival that operates like an art competition.

In 2018, the Downtown Modesto Partnership partnered with the Fasm Creative Battle to amplify the growing energy of Downtown Modesto by bringing large-scale art installations to the heart of the city. To date, 22 world-stage murals have been installed by DoMo Walls artists and are treasured by this Central Valley community. Now, the festival is less like a competition and more like an art love fest, a celebration of the whimsy that always resides in the beating heart of every solid community.
Come out for DoMo Walls 2023 on Friday, October 6th! @domowalls
