Block Party is unique to other retail stores in Louisville. We operate on micro-rental agreements as opposed to just consignment and artists will be working co-op hours in the store. There is a great sense of community and ownership among our artists. The Yellow Door Art Market in Detroit, Michigan is an example of another store just like us. Hopefully after learning more about them you’ll have a better understanding about Block Party just like I did.
Thanks to Block Party artist Mary Beth Brown for taking these photos from the big Grand Opening event yesterday! Mayor Greg Fischer cut the big ribbon officially opening the new South Fourth Street shopping district! We had DJ Matt Anthony playing music in the store and a bubble machine outside! It was so much fun and we loved feeling the support from the downtown community.
