The BFG Grand Opening!!!

It's that time! The Wheeler Open House is this weekend! That means The Benjamin Franklin Gallery is having it's Grand Opening!

Wheeler Arts Community's first in-house gallery, operated and curated for residents, by residents. Part of the IDADA First Friday gallery tour, Wheeler residents have new work on display in the gallery on the first Friday of every month.

Wondering why it's named Benjamin Franklin?

That's because no matter the style, no matter the size, every piece on display in the gallery is priced at $100. The BFG is Indy's newest destination for local art by some of the city's most promising artists. Easy on the eyes, nice on the wallet, and always new.

Here's what we've got for you over the Open House weekend:
