This Labor Day Weekend in Indianapolis,IN, @GangGangCulture presents it's second annual Butter: A Fine Art Fair. Now from Sept 1st to Sept 4th, Butter is showcasing the works of more than 50 Black visual artists from across the country. Back by popular demand, BUTTER invites guests to see and experience art in new, more equitable ways, pushing boundaries by elevating Black artists in the national conversation.

Butter's VIP Night was an amazing start to the weekend. Night 1 - Black Artists made well over 100,000 profit for pieces displayed in the gallery. GangGang Culture doesn't charge a vendor fee to artists and offers 100% of the proceeds back to the artists. From the Art to the Interactive activations inside and outside the hall, you will enjoy your time. Butter is family friendly as well, those we are 18 and under are welcome for Free.
We even got a chance to speak with Mali and Alan, the curators of @GangGangculture :
You can visit the Butter shop to purchase merchandise from local business owners. Good Music provided by a plethora of Naptown's favorite DJs such as Dj Cleopatra, Dj Metrognome, and many more. Butter has their very own drink called "Apple Butter Dream" curated by @Mister.Wright using @tannorriastable's apple butter who is partnered with @ashandwlmcider. You can purchase on site. There's a food vendor outside and servers serving Bread Butter from local bakery @Ameliasbakery. You can do a "Walk & Talk" tour with "Through2Eyes" owner Sampson Livingston to learn about the rich history that's rooted around and where the Stutz building now sits.
