Art of Murder

The NOTOrious case of The Final Friday Frame-Up

The artists and shop owners of Topeka’s beloved arts district, NOTO, are in a furry over the news that beloved art patron, Art Framer (played by special guest Sheriff Herman Jones), announces his decision to sell half of the property in NOTO to an out of town developer names Lois Price. Her nationwide art discount chain store, The Art Hole, threatens to close down the local arts scene with cheap imported and poorly created factory art. But before Art Framer can sign the deal, he drops dead at the ceremony, leaving behind a slew of crazy suspects. Was it Jay Walker, president of the Creative Regional Artists and Painters (C.R.A.P.)? Or was it Lisa Tu-owen, the zany portrait artist with an obsession for framer. Or maybe Al Fresco, the Italian artist with immense passion? Or the lovely seductress and former wife of the deceased, Franny Francesca Frederica Framer? It’s up to Detective Saul Lucien and his assistant Officer Billy Club to find the killer . . . but they’ll need your help in
The Case of the Final Friday Frame-Up.

Party for a Cause on June 8.
21+ Event

Take part in an interactive murder mystery event performed in six scenes on a variety of stages. Stop in-between each stage and enjoy food from local vendors, libations and more. It is an evening you won’t want to miss.

Mind Blowing

After an exhilarating evening of live music at the 11th Annual Jam4Dan, I ventured upstairs to Two Wolves Studio to try this new Virtual Reality Art creation. I was blown away… Alexander Lancaster, gallery owner and collective member, caught me moments after for feedback. Here are my raw thoughts.


Virtual Reality Art Session

Two Wolves’ artists, Alexandra and Aaron host Virtual Reality art sessions each weekend at Two Wolves Studio, 114 SW 8th Ave.

Wearing Virtual Reality goggles, hand controllers and Google Tilt Brush you can choose from a variety of amazing backgrounds, tools and mediums to create your own Virtual Art piece.

Virtual Art sessions are limited and solo. The cost is $15 for 20 minutes and $1 for each additional two minutes.

According to Alex and Aaron, satisfaction is guaranteed.

“This is a trippy experience!”

Walk-ins are welcome, but priority is given to those with an appointment. Sign up here.
