stART your 2014 ArtPrize season early with Avenue for the Arts and San Chez Bistro by taking a sneak peek inside an ArtPrize venue as San Chez is transformed into a lively street fair packed with art vendors and great music!

This one night-only event on September 21st will feature artwork, food & drink demonstrations, live performances, and a chance to meet national & local artists.

From 5-9pm, enjoy live music from Avenue favorites and savor San Chez’s signature cocktails & select tapas as you peruse booths offering up everything from handmade house goods to paintings & clothing + much more (all created by vendors from The Market on First Fridays and South Division businesses!).
