A fun day of art at Banfill-Locke Center

Banfille-Locke Center for the Arts hosted its annual Family Art event July 7.

Jamison the Juggler of Minneapolis stopped by Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts during its annual Family Art Sunday, July 7 and performed an impromptu juggling act. Here, he balances on a board with an underlying cylinder and juggles butcher knives at the same time.
