One of the missions of the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is to foster individual creativity. Few people have done more to support the arts and the artistic community in Mill Valley than Murphy Productions‘ Daniel Patrick and Erma Murphy.

So it makes perfect sense that Murphy and Patrick are hosting their latest Sunday Salon – a potluck-style meal that leads into attendees performing music, poetry, dance, storytelling and much more, this time under the theme of “The Art of Love” – at O’Hanlon, where Murphy serves as co-director.

The latest edition is set for Sunday, Feb. 11 from 5-8pm.

“These event tie into the tradition of the salon, which were an essential ingredient back in the day when different people like poets and artists and scientists and philosophers got together to exchange ideas,” Patrick says. “That fertile ground really charged this whole creative surge in humanity – the Renaissance, essentially.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite dish and beverage to share and to share a poem, work of art or song that relates to the theme. Email Patrick if you plan to present at the event. Potluck is at 5pm. Performances start at 6pm. Cost is $10. MORE INFO.
