TGIFF. The Open Source Project in Tempe is hosting their monthly party tonight and they're bringing a new round of local art and folksy sounds of violinist Tobie Milford.

Final Friday at the Open Source Project

"Final Fridays is when we exchange all the art out for the month," says Michael Witham, co-owner of the Open Source Project. "Artists come and display their art for a month, and along with the exchanging of the art, we just give everyone an opportunity to kick back and have a party."

Witham says the event is the product of the OSP's mission statement. "We want to allow creative people in the arts, music, graphic design, and everywhere really, to come in and give them a physical space to meet."

The Open Source Project is a hybrid of a coffee shop, an art gallery, a music venue, and a place to brainstorm and work on projects with fellow artists.

Eight new artists are on display for July, including Matt Dickson, Jessica Jordan, Maral Tabrizi, Chet Lawton, AGE, Don Cohlman, and Kyl Moreno. Witham says he enjoys being able to get a fresh look every month.

The Open Source Project is located at 1415 East University Drive in Tempe. The event runs Friday at 8:30 p.m. until midnight. For more information about the Open Source Project's Final Friday event, visit their Twitter profile.
