Sign of Tradition 

Just 99 red balloons floating around downtown Lawrence tonight would be a disappointment to Dominic Sova. He’s the organizer of the Red Balloon To-Do, a local art crawl with a five-year history that he describes as “a lot of performance artists and people reveling and cavorting in the spirit of art.” The works of more than 100 Lawrence artists will be displayed at five commercial spaces — Astrokitty Comics (15 East Seventh Street, 785-856-8607), Wild Man Vintage (939 Massachusetts, 7 85-856-0303), Jackpot Music Hall (943 Massachusetts, 785-843-2846), Mirth Internet Café (745 New Hampshire, 785-841-3282) and Solidarity Revolutionary Center and Resource Library (1109 Massachusetts, 785-865-1374) — and at one house (you’ll find it — just look for the red balloons). The quality of the work varies widely — every artist who wants to exhibit is accepted. But Sova estimates that there have been as many as 1,000 people milling around for the free event. And every last one of them gets a red balloon.
Sat., Sept. 8, 5 p.m.
