Alternative Spaces: A Guide for Business Owners

With the success of the IDADA First Friday Art Tour which began back in 2004 in downtown Indianapolis, many business owners have sought to use their locations as an alternative gallery space for visual art exhibitions. When done properly, this can be a wonderful opportunity for an artist to reach a new audience and a business owner to bring extra attention and activity to their space. However, there are best practices that should be followed in order to make it a win/win for everyone.
