In the fall of 2017, we received an Art Works Grant through the National Endowment for the Arts to further our mission in the Garfield Park Creative Community. We decided to do something extra special during our First Friday openings by turning our parking lots at The Tube Factory Artspace into vending space for local artists and food vendors. We call this our First Friday Night Market. Here at the Tube, we wanted to expand upon our first friday programming to offer local residents and garfield park neighbors to come out, socialize and engage with each other while enjoying our space here in Garfield Park.
These night markets offer residents a variety of activities. It’s a space to socialize, listen to live music, eat food, and shop from local Indy artists and food vendors. You can check out our October event here and our November event here. In addition to our featured exhibits from local to nationally renowned artists at the Tube Factory, Listen Hear and the Guichelaar Gallery, we will regularly incorporate night markets into our programming in 2018. We hope to see you there!
