Silver City MainStreet/Arts & Cultural District is partnering with the Future Forge and various community groups and artists to offer an arts and cultural experience to residents of Grant county. Make-and-Take activities will be from 10 am to 2 pm every Saturday at the Maker’s Market at Main Street Plaza, May through October. 

On Saturday, August 7, Silver City MainStreet invites you to make bottle cap magnets. The magnets are fun and easy to make. You will want to make more than one! This is a free, family fun activity to do while at the Maker’s Market downtown. 

Silver City MainStreet/Arts and Cultural District is an accredited New Mexico MainStreet program committed to working with our community to foster economic development in our historic downtown. We do this through collaboration and promotion of downtown events, improvements to and preservation of our historic district, creative place-making, encouraging the creative economy, and the development of new and creative uses for downtown buildings. We are proud of our downtown historic district, and encourage you to stroll about the eclectic businesses and interesting architecture.

The Future Forge is providing the space for the Make and Take table at the Maker’s Market, held May through October on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Silver City. This table will be used to offer free, family oriented activities for residents of Grant county. Silver City MainStreet offers a small stipend for supplies. 

The purpose is to provide an arts and cultural experience for youth and families. Art experiences are not readily available in Grant county, and this is a great opportunity for youth to experience art and see Makers selling their work at the Maker’s Market. It makes art more relevant, especially as a way to earn income.
