Art

For over 20 years, Freddy’s Backroom has provided an alternative exhibition space for local art. The mostly monthly shows share space with nightly events and performances. Artists on display range from the burgeoning to the well established.

On permanent exhibition throughout the bar, are the mesmerizing and popular “repurposed video constructions” of video artist and Freddy’s co-owner Donald O’Finn.
