THE DISPLAY

First Fridays in the Exchange

Every month, the galleries, restaurants and shops of the Exchange District stay open a little later to create an evening of art and celebration like no other in the city. From Lennard Taylor’s living mannequins to pop ups and galleries on multiple floors of 290 McDermot and 62 Albert (among many many many others), there’s literally something for everyone.
