FIRST FRIDAY PARTICIPANTS ANNOUNCE LAUNCH OF NEW WEBSITE
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The participants in downtown Tuscaloosa’s monthly First Friday arts and entertainment event are launching a new website that will focus on the upcoming schedule of events. The website www.firstfridaytuscaloosa.com launches Aug. 22, 2017 featuring the September First Friday event.
The site, created by The Nine, is designed to make the First Friday art offerings accessible to the public with an Art Walk map displaying the location of all galleries.
First Friday participants encourage patrons to visit other galleries and businesses within walking distance on the Art Walk. Galleries on the Art Walk include The Arts Council and The University of Alabama Galleries at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, The Paul R. Jones Gallery of Art, Harrison Galleries, O’Connor Art Studios and Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy.
Seasonal participants are listed along with additional arts offerings in the area including Art Night on the first Thursday of each month in downtown Northport.
For more information and a personal look into the First Friday participants and their venues, an online Jubilation article has been posted on tuscarts.org/jubilation.
First Friday takes place on the first Friday of the month in downtown Tuscaloosa. Local galleries, businesses and restaurants are open in the evening for the community to experience what downtown Tuscaloosa has to offer. First Friday occurs monthly with the exception of holidays. Event hours vary among the locations and are listed on the site.
