Arts, Food


BY Blake Turner


Index Art Center will host it’s 4th annual fund-raising Barbeque this Sunday, June 10th at 27 Mix. If your not familiar, IAC is 501(c)(3)nonprofit contemporary arts organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the visual arts in Newark. They collaborate with schools and other nonprofit organizations to provide educational and community-based programs in an active art gallery located at 585 Broad St.

This Sunday at 4pm, local bistro 27 Mix is handing over their keys to the gallery and allowing the proprietors to jump behind the grill. For just $40 you get an evening of:

-A variety of thoughtfully prepared foods, fresh off the grill.

-Your favorite brews (and wine) served, and included with your donation.

-Special treats including The Merkel Burger, Beaz Big Dogs, Lisa Loveburgers (veggie).

-Cornhole! (not sure what this means, but it sounds exciting)

The gallery will also spruce up the evening with music and art by Celina Vibert. To buy your tickets NOW click here.

27 Mix fills up every year for the annual BBQ, pulling tri-state area artists and supporters to Newark.

The infamous Merkel burger: a staple for the IAC BBQ.

This is a kid - friendly event so feel free to bring the whole family.
