The Insiders: Everyone makes mistakes – and some of them are art!
The famed American artist Scott Adams once said, “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” He also said, “Dance like it hurts. Love like you need money. Work when people are watching.” Okay, he’s the guy who created the comic strip Dilbert. Nonetheless, at least that first quote (and maybe some of the second, if you play your cards right) applies tonight at the Kimball Jenkins Estate, the site of Art For Everyone. More than 200 pieces of art that were donated to Goodwill stores across New England will be on display and on sale at this semi-annual fundraising event – some for as little as $5! That’s so thrifty, Macklemore himself would approve of this tag-popping good time. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Kimball Jenkins Estate (266 N. Main St.). Admission is free; drinks and refreshments will be available. For more information, call 225-2932 or visit goodwillnne.org.

Elsewhere, there are opportunities to go Gatsby, Gandalf, or Gisele. The Concord Co-op hosts “Jump, Jive, Eat and Drink at the Roaring Twenties.” Tickets are $15 or $10 for Co-op members; ticket sales benefit Families In Transition. Whip up your best bootlegger’s outfit and step into the speakeasy! The event runs 6 to 8 p.m. (feel free to stay up all night to get Nucky).
From Boardwalk to the catwalk, there’s a refugee fashion show, part of World Refugee Day festivities at the State House lawn. Events run from 3 to 7 p.m.; fashion show is at 6 p.m. Check out this week’s Insider for a full preview of the event.
Lastly, visit the Concord Public Library for a showing of The Hobbit. The movie plays at 2 p.m.
