The Eagle Prairie Arts District is holding their grand opening at Dias Artistries on Friday from 6-9 p.m. Dias Artistries is located at the corner of Columbus Street and Wildwood Avenue in Rio Dell.

There will be live music, local government officials, and a booth to reflect and provide information on Measure J. Second District Humboldt County Supervisor-elect Estelle Fennell will be on hand to answer questions and discuss Measure J with the public.

Measure X, Rio Dell's bond proposition, failed in the last election. It has now resurfaced as Measure J and is for the voters of Rio Dell to improve streets, among other things, for $2 million. It will take a two-thirds vote to get it approved.

Dias Artistries looks forward to housing other artists work within their business as part of the Eagle Prairie Art District.

For more information on the Grand Opening you can contact diasarts@hotmail.com.
