50+ Black Artists
The Stutz
September 1-4, 2022


Join us on Labor Day Weekend for BUTTER 2, a multi-day fine art fair showcasing the works of 50+ Black visual artists from across the country. Competitively produced, BUTTER seeks to push boundaries by elevating Black artists in the national conversation, promoting equity in the arts and the creative economy. Artists pay no fee to participate and receive 100% of the profit from works sold thus strengthening a new model toward equity in the arts. Consider the exhibition equity in action.

This year’s event will take place at The Stutz building in downtown Indianapolis (1060 N Capitol Avenue). Open to the general public, kids included, BUTTER 2 welcomes you to experience live music, top DJs, BUTTER-themed bites and merchandise, as well as guest speakers and artist workshops (registration required) on select days. Expect an emotional, elevated experience that you won’t want to miss.

Thursday, September 1 // Sponsor VIP Night: 4 – 7 p.m.

Friday, September 2 // Grand Opening: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Saturday, September 3 // General Admission: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Sunday, September 4 // Closing Day: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
