Join NextFab as we participate in Second Thursdays – a chance to view new galleries and creative spaces, and connect with the artists and makers of Philadelphia. Come see art, get inspired, and even have a delicious dinner as you visit the 1800 North American building! We have eight subtenant businesses here whose creative work ranges from activating salvaged materials, restoring historic neon, empowering artists, building amazing bicycles, supporting artisan businesses, growing gorgeous flowers, and mixing up delicious cocktails. We will be opening our doors monthly on Second Thursdays to welcome you all!
On April 14th, come take a tour of NextFab spaces and studios, and view our newest Gallery Show with the Center for Art in Wood x NextFab Winter Residency Fellow Robert Aiosa. Meet other like-minded makers, and see our makerspace shops activated.
While at the 1800 N. American St. building be sure to check out our neighbors:
The Resource Exchange will have their reCreate Gallery open showing the work of local artists. Their nonprofit shop, gallery, and workshop space promotes creative reuse, recycling, and resource conservation by diverting valuable materials from the waste stream and redirecting them to artists, builders, educators, and the general public.
The Neon Museum of Philadelphia is offering FREE admission to their collection including their special exhibit Neon Currents.
Sor Ynez will be serving up their traditionally inspired cuisine with Mexican ingredients and methods but focused on a modern and sustainable future. They are currently featuring an all-female owned/operated citywide special with La Gritona Reposado & Love City Lager.
Keystone Bicycle Co is a full-service bicycle shop serving a variety of cycling groups in Philadelphia, from adventure and distance cyclists to everyday commuters and casual riders. Their goal is to make cycling more accessible to members of our community by providing personalized and knowledgeable service, products, and community programming. As a worker-owned cooperative, they practice democratic decision-making, collective ownership, and community engagement. KBC aims to be a hub for cycling advocacy and inspiration in Philadelphia.
