Events Through the Year

Upcoming Events:

Cafe Pyrus Exhibit | April-June 2016IMG_20160412_182824

Delicious vegan food, great coffee, and a rolling exhibit of Altekrea artists. We love to help energize and engage with local spaces. Altekrea isn’t a fire-and-forget festival, we’re engaging the community for months during our lead time.

Our artists get a chance to display and sell their art in a hopping local space that sees plenty of traffic. We get the word out about Altekrea, and create strong community partnerships.

The May exhibit goes up soon, but you haven’t missed the opportunity altogether. We’ve got one more changeover in June, so email!
