Warm weather months are HERE!
...or at least they should be...
SO MANY THINGS HAPPENING IN MAY:
First a big shout out to our poster artist of the month: Liz Moldenhauer!
** BFF CLEAN UP CHALLENGE **
May 5th BFF is on the eve of Benson Cleanup Day!
For those that prefer the night, BFF is offering a Clean Up Challenge!
Fill a small bag (provided) with "Micro-Trash" from the Benson streets (smaller than a fist) and return it for Jake's Gift Cards!
Bags can be found and returned at the BFF Artist Market (located on Military Ave)
** The BFF ARTIST MARKET is BACK! **
In the street at Military Ave & Maple St.
20+ Artists & Vendors
** Announcing our summer street DJ Sponsor:
Mind & Soul 101.3 FM !!! ***
Stroll the streets of Benson with a little rhythm in your step
** May is also the debut of our BFF ART BOOTH (BooFF) **
Located on-street - the BFF Art Booth is an interactive booth that will change concepts monthly.
May 5th, Artist Laura Hopp will be transforming the booth into an Oracle Shop.
Tarot Readings & more will give audience members the feeling they are experiencing something playfully metaphysical and highly magical, a departure from the mundane world in which fast-paced America finds itself daily stepping into.
*** And also - a big shout out to our Spring Intern, Tanner Reckling!
He'll be curating and operating 2 events monthly at various venues throughout the neighborhood!
His May events are:
Sculpture & Painting
@ Parlour 1887
