Annual IMAF & INDIEana Handicraft Exchange Festival: Kicking off June 11 in downtown Indy.
Apparatus will present the 10th Annual Independent Music + Art Festival (IMAF) in conjunction with the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange—a free, day-long outdoor festival featuring local musicians, visual artists, and other “independents”—from noon until 8 p.m. on June 11 in downtown Indianapolis. Founded in 2002, this annual event honors local musicians and artists who perform original live music and create original work, and provides a unique opportunity for interaction with other local artists and the community.
Twelve acts will perform on two stages in the exterior courtyard of the Harrison Center for the Arts while 100-plus vendors from the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange will display their contemporary crafts and handmade goods on the grounds and throughout the building. The Lord of the Yum Yum will again serve as the emcee.
Also, Covers, a group show featuring famous album cover art re-imagined by local artists, will be in the Harrison Gallery. Food and beverage vendors will be Judge’s BBQ, Duos - slow food fast, and Sun King Brewing Company.
