The first Alleyways (in the Exchange) was a huge success! Although the rainy weather brought most of the alleyways indoors it didn’t stop the crowds from poring in to the rain locations and filling the Exchange District with energy and fun.
The bottom floor of the Centennial Concert Hall was our rain location for the market and proved to be a cozy spot to house the over 60 vendors. Curated by Lucky Girl Pop Up the market was filled with handmade jewelry, leatherwork, fresh local food, vintage clothing, and unique locally created crafts.
We moved our Alleyways Swing to the event space at the back of Hut K where we laid down our 25 square ft of black and white checkered flooring. Suneil Pandey of Hepcat Studios taught Swing moves that had the place hopping throughout the evening.
The ArtSpace dray way stayed in it’s original location. Being a covered tunnel it was a fun creative space that can keep running rain or shine. It was a great space to relax with a drink and watch the artwork of international artist Yoel Jimenez begin to take shape.
We’re looking forward to our bringing our next Alleyways (in the Exchange) out into the streets, with the market on Elgin (between Lily and Bertha) and Alleyways Tango on John Hirsh Place behind Corrientes.
Hope to see you there!
