We’re excited for the rest of our summer season of South FIRST FRIDAYS
ArtWalkSJ with our gallery & art hosting venue partners plus the outdoor STREET MRKTs on first Fridays of August, September & October (7pm–11pm).
Free admission and great for all ages.
As producers of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk, SubZERO Festival and the STREET MRKT urban faires, we are wanting to accommodate more of the indie arts & culture that we love throughout our entire summer season of events. Our aim is to help support these various subcultures on a more regular basis with additional visibility to our growing supportive community including the thousands of patrons that come out to our monthly art walks.
In working towards this goal; we are introducing a “feature theme” to each of the monthly Street Mrkts which will dovetail perfectly into our already amazing lineup of artists that have signed up for the full summer season (First Fridays of August, September & October out in the SoFA District.)
The upcoming Street Mrkt featured themes will be:
August 3rd: ART OF ZINES
Zines, indie comics, poetry / literature chapbooks, book arts, prints, etc.
September 7th: LIVE & LET DIY
Arts, fashion, products and/or services, demos and how-to workshops by individual artists, creative indies and organizations that offer these kinds of classes or services.
October 5th: NO SOUND EVER DIES
All things applying to sound (art, performance, instruments, etc) and / or resonance).
