On weekdays, the River Market thrives as downtown’s workforce grabs lunch in and around Ottenheimer Market Hall. Over the weekend, residents and tourists alike bustle about its shops, restaurants and museums.

Adapting with the times, Second Friday Art Night (2FAN), is going fully virtual for the time being. After last month's successful test run, 2FAN is moving forward with the digital format for the June 12 event.

This month's lineup will look a little different. Each venue will do their own thing for the first hour, then everyone will tune into the 2nd Friday Art Night Facebook page at 6:30 p.m. to see live music by We Few. Everything will be accessible by visiting the 2FAN Facebook page, where you can scroll through to see the different "posts" from each participant. You can hop from post to post just like you would hop between locations in real life. 

Here's some of what you can expect during the first hour:


Bella Vita Jewelry

Bella Vita will be spotlighting local artist Milkdadd and her new multimedia artwork. She will also be live painting.
