Other events will include The Sherwin-Williams Colormix 2012 starting at 11 a.m. at the Marketplace Design Center, a jewelry making demonstration, which also starts at 11 a.m. at the Bluestone Fine Art Gallery and a film titled The Architect and The Painternarrated by James Franco at Drexel University from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
