While our neighbors up north are gearing up for tons of out-of-towners flooding in to watch some sportsball, down here we can keep it a little classier and head to the sixth annual Tucson Sculpture Festival's opening night event on Saturday, Jan. 31. 

The event features over 75 local and international sculptors, including artists from New York, Germany and China. Hosted by the Drawing Studio, the event takes place at the Art Gallery at 1122 N. Stone Ave., just north of Speedway Boulevard. Works will also be on view at satellite locations including the Moen Mason Gallery, the Granada Gallery and the Sculpture Resource Center.

According to event director Tanya Rich, last year's festival brought over 800 attendees to the event and with more artists and participating galleries for 2015, they expect an even larger showing.

The opening reception will run from 6 until 9 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Art Gallery, featuring North Indian classical duo Jugalbandhi who will play traditional Hindustani music during the event. Food and drink will also be served.

The festival runs for a total of two weeks, with the closing reception on Saturday, Feb. 14 from 6 until 9 p.m. You can also see the sculpture fest anytime between then from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. when the gallery is open.
