Hudgens Arts Center celebrates support with free admission

The Jacqueline Casey Hudgens Center for the Arts received more than $90,000 in donations after sending out an SOS to supporters at the start of October seeking to raise $30,000 in 30 days to address a cash shortfall.

To say thank you and in hopes of attracting new guests, the Duluth arts center is waiving admission charges through the end of the year. That comes at a good time: The center is hosting the Hudgens Artist Market on Friday (5:30-8:30 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m.-4 p.m.). Information: 770-623-6002, www.thehudgens.org.
