#3 Discover new local artists during First Fridays in Ypsilanti
Region: Southeast Michigan
Location: Downtown Ypsilanti
The goal of First Fridays Ypsilanti (FFY) is “to invite community members into the downtown area to support local talent and businesses while having a fun time!” It began taking shape in 2013, with groundwork laid by the Ugly Mug Cafe, where monthly art exhibits had been a regular occurrence. With the involvement and support of the folks at Bona Sera Cafe, FFY as it currently exists started taking shape. Support from the Ann Arbor Awesome Foundation, Bank of Ann Arbor, and members of the community meant that organizers could live the dream of expanding and promoting FFY, and truly highlighting all the good happening in downtown Ypsi.
