The Independent Filmmaker Project celebrates their new space all weekend long with Friday reception for the show in their new gallery, photography by Ann Marsden and Gus Gustafson, curated by Thom Barry, a fancy gala on Saturday with food, open bar, special guests, and valet parking, and a general open house on Sunday for those of you too booked to make the earlier parties. From what we’ve seen at the new 550 Vandalia Space—which will also have Lake Monster Brewing and a beautiful outdoor plaza—its going to be a hot new arts and culture spot, and this cool new IFP space will be integral to it. Friday-Sunday. Open House, Gallery Opening are free, Gala is $100. —Curt Stanski
