TOWERING TALENT

The grand opening of the newly remodeled Bromo Seltzer building approaches.

Today is the first chance for the public to see the interior since the renovations ended. Visitors may tour the studios and view artwork by local artists renting studio space on the floors above. Refreshments will be available.
