Informal Art Forums

ARTISTS C’MON OUT! All artists and arty types welcome: Visual artists, poets, musicians etc. etc. and so on and so forth.

Fridays | about 5-7pm
Ed’s (no name) Bar | 252 E 3rd St

The eXperimental Art Research Terminal (XART), a very loosely structured and defrocked nonprofit organization, has encouraged Informal Art Forums as democratized gatherings with no one in charge at various bars and restaurants for years. Come join us – won’t you?
