On Wednesday, May 25, from 5–7 p.m., you are invited to join Arts Council for Long Beach President Marco Schindelmann and Executive Director Griselda Suárez to have an agenda-free, open conversation about the arts in Long Beach. This is part of an ongoing conversation with the public; it is an informal time for us to hear your ideas as well as answer any questions you may have about the Arts Council’s latest initiatives.

May’s Open Conversations takes place at Willmore Wine Bar in Bixby Knolls, a casual wine shop that serves wine by the glass as well as cheese and charcuterie plates. It is located at 3848 Atlantic Ave., and the Wine Bar welcomes people 21 and older.
