2nd friday art night 5pm to 8pm with Rock It! Lab in background

2nd Friday Art Night (2FAN) and the Art Program at CALS:

Join us each month for 2nd Friday Art Night (2FAN), a downtown Little Rock after-hours art event that happens on the second Friday of each month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Events are hosted at several locations in downtown Little Rock by various organizations.

In January 2024, CALS began hosting its monthly 2FAN event at the CALS Rock It! Lab at 120 River Market Ave. Each month, attendees will be greeted with a local artist selling their work and/or providing art demonstrations, a DJ or performer playing music, and light refreshments and libations. Supported in part by the Windgate Foundation.

The event is free to attend and parking is free with validation in the library lot/deck (as space is available).

Stop by each second Friday to chat with local artists, shop locally from Arkansas makers, take in some music, and sip wine with friends.

For more information about all 2FAN activities, visit the 2nd Friday Art Night Facebook page.


During the ongoing renovations at the Main Library, the Underground Gallery in the Roberts Library and our many libraries around the CALS system will still feature works from CALS’s extensive permanent collection of Arkansas artwork and will exhibit artwork from Arkansas artists and collectors.

Check the CALS Roberts Library Facebook page and the exhibition information page on the CALS Roberts Library website for art and event information.
