The newly reopened monOrchid Gallery at 214 East Roosevelt Street celebrates the downtown arts community with its MonOrchid Arts Fete to benefit the gallery, a local food bank (bring a can), and the Roosevelt Row micro-loan program for artists. The black-tie affair features art from more than two dozen locals, including Brian Boner, Gregory Sale, and Carrie Marill, a Spoken Boutique runway fashion show, and dance beats by Radio Phoenix and Mr. Meeble.
