Big Canvas, Big Song

Steam Plant plays host to Vanessa Behan benefit

The Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery is the beneficiary of a new event held in conjunction with First Friday.

Big Canvas, Big Song will feature live music by Abbey Crawford, large-scale abstract paintings by Jim Dhillon and photographs by Philip Dhillon. The event, at the Steam Plant, also will feature samples of Steam Plant beer, served by head brewer Greg Piller, and samples of wines from Arbor Crest Wine Cellars.

The event is free and open to all ages, but donations will be collected to benefit the crisis nursery. The nursery offers a host of services to families in need, including emergency child care for families in distress, crisis counseling, parenting classes and social service referrals.
