MONROE/WEST MONROE -- The weather may be hot, but it's the perfect time to check out some cool art across the Twin Cities.
On Thursday evening, galleries in downtown Monroe and Antique Alley in West Monroe will feature works from over 60 artists.
Each featured artist is a member of the Downtown Arts Alliance.
Organizers say it's a great opportunity to view great local pieces while visiting with friends and neighbors.
A trolley car will be giving free rides to the galleries on both sides of the river from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
