Road trip down to Santa Ana…

Headed down to Santa Ana today to check out the ’10th Anniversary Exhibition’ at the CSUF Grand Central Art Center. The big opening reception to celebrate the exhibition is next Sat, March 7th with events planned throughout the day. The show has been up for a couple weeks and we wanted to head down today and check it out, since there are so many shows again this coming weekend, we knew we wouldn’t be able to get down to the opening reception this Saturday.
