The Owatonna Arts Center is hosting a celebration of art & music on Saturday September 27 from 6-11pm. Costume contest! Giveaways! Raffles!

This year's theme is steam punk, which revolves around an industrial Victorian look. Whitey Thompson's car paintings will be hanging in the gallery and the featured band for the evening will be Jimmi and the Band of Souls, winners of 2014's Road to Memphis Challenge. Sample their music at www.jimmiandthebandofsouls.com.
