Every year we look forward to this weekend's South End Art Hop, an event hosted by SEABA that brings the community together to celebrate the dynamic art and culture of Burlington. This Friday through Sunday is packed with amazing events, shows, and activities so we've put together a quick guide to what we're looking forward to most. We'll also be scoring the city for some incredible outdoor sculptures and murals that are on display for the month of September. See you out there!
