FILTHY LINEN NIGHT - SATURDAY 9/14 - AN ART PARTY FROM MARKET TO MARKET
Frenchmen Art Market presents Filthy Linen Night, an art party linking Frenchmen Street and St
Claude, to celebrate the reopening of the St Claude night market and raise funds to light their lot.
Filthy Linen Night coincides with St Claude's regular 2nd Saturday gallery openings. A retro party bus
will run as a shuttle connecting Frenchmen and St Claude via the art markets. Filthy Linen goers can
enjoy the donation bars at the St Claude market, as well as at galleries on Frenchmen and St Claude.
Filthy Linen's inaugural night is sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon's great campaign www.pbrart.com.
Get on the bus at Frenchmen! St Claude Market is the first stop where Pabst will host a donation
beer station and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum will also sponsor a pre-mixed cocktail bar at the market.
