CoffeehouseGallery Opening
At Moe & Johnny’s – 5380 N. College Avenue, Indianapolis
Monday, March 30th 6pm—
Refreshments served, Cash Bar

Vicki and Chuck Mack, proprietors of Moe and Johnny’s Restaurant, welcome you to the first in a series of artworks by veterans. We have designed a new and unique art venue in Indianapolis, the CoffeeHouseGallery, connected to Moe and Johnny’s restaurant. It is located at 5380 North College Avenue just south of Broad Ripple and across from the Jazz Kitchen.

Why is this venue unique?
First, CoffeeHouseGallery will showcase the creative and expressive artwork of the men and women veterans who served our country in war theaters from World War II to Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, and most recently Iraq and Afghanistan.
Second , Our veterans initiatives are supported by many important organizations including the Veterans Administration; Herron School of Art and Design; Very Special Arts, Indiana; Veterans for Peace, Chapter 49; Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana, Inc.; Save Our Veterans; WFYI, Indianapolis and the Vonnegut Library.

Why come to our opening?
To see the very special and thought provoking works of our first featured artist, Tim Hildebrandt.
Tim attended Herron School of Art and served with the First Cavalry in Vietnam. He exhibits regionally and his work is included in private collections nationwide.
CoffeeHouse Gallery will feature many more veteran artists: painters, watercolorists, photographers, craft designers, cartoonists and jewelers.
All of the work is for sale benefiting the artists and not-for-profit veteran’s organizations.

At Moe and Johnny’s we honor military service and we give back. You will be surprised by Tim’s paintings and assemblages. We look forward to you joining us.
