About 3rd Fridays
3rd Fridays are a unique exhibition of a wide variety of local Indianapolis talents. 3rd Fridays are FREE TO ATTEND and ALL AGES (though parents should use discretion as there may be adult themes, sensitive content/topics/material featured).
The lobby gallery displays work from three visual artists, and we have space for ten other vendors throughout the building. Painters, sculptors, photographers, fashion designers, woodworkers, metal artists, candle & soap makers, jewelry makers, and artisans of all kinds join us for 3rd Fridays. The evening opens with a community drum circle that is open to everyone of any level of experience. Each month a new musical guest will perform, as well as poets, authors, and comedians throughout the night.
There will be local craft beer by Metazoa, local hard cider by Ash & Elm, and wine available for purchase to those 21+. Soda and water will also be available for purchase.
Our location has plenty of free parking and is handicap accessible.
*Although this event is open to all ages, please be advised there could be adult themed and/or sensitive content/topics/material featured.*
