This Friday from 6 to 9 pm, art gallery 5547 Project, located in Irvington, will be opening an Earth Day themed event for 18 local and emerging artists. These artists will get a chance to reveal their perspective of our planet Earth and share them with the world.
The all-age and pet friendly art show is a free event which will include live musical performances from Thea and Thieves, Wesley Moore and Katie Garringer. Along with live music, there will be a fire dancing show put on by Haley Challies and Sarah Hoffman. The event will also feature local businesses from Beast Irvington who will provide free appetizers, and free beer tasting from BIMP(Beer Is My Passion). Another local business, Smokey Meat Sweats will have food for purchase. And our team from Indy Mojo will be at the opening reception as well to promote Mojo Mongrels, their Humane Society Mutt Strut team. Puppy chow will be available for purchase.
5547 Project is a unique art gallery that has been open for about a year. The garage-turned-gallery has a coffee shop inside, Coal Yard Coffee – your one stop shop for a daily fix of caffeine and art all in one! The gallery’s comfortable atmosphere allows anyone to come in, look, discuss, and purchase artwork to support local artists and businesses any day of the week. 5547 Project wants to be all about the artist and do not receive commission for displayed work. After renting out a wall, the artist will receive all of their profit.
In addition to First Friday art exhibitions at the 5547 Project, Coal Yard Coffee hosts different events every Friday which include comedy, spoken word and open mic night. Come out and support your local artists and businesses in Irvington!
