Gary Love Fest Kicks Off Saturday, September 14th!
What better way to celebrate the arts and raise awareness than to throw a party large enough for an entire city? Together with the School of the Arts at Indiana University Northwest, Gary Public Library, the City of Gary' Office of Redevelopment, and other partners, the Decay Devils and #PAINTGARY are proud to announce the inaugural Gary Love Fest. Free to the public, this event offers countless opportunities to forge new friendships, appreciate art, and discover the importance of preserving our local landmarks. Visitors will be able to explore the transformation of Union Station, tour nearby historical monuments, and enjoy 40 murals installed around downtown Gary over the past 18 months. Guests can also partake in self-guided mural tours, interactive art stations, and preservation tours.
Mark your calendars and join us on September 14th from 11 am – 6 pm at Gateway Park (400 Broadway, Gary, IN).
