GARY | Antique autos, art and amped-up audio will be featured in the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District’s  Pop-Up Art event from 2-8 p.m. Saturday on Lake Street in the Miller Beach neighborhood.

More than 20 classic cars will be parked in the diagonal spaces north and south of the Miller Bakery Café, 555 S. Lake St., according to Gene Ayers, owner of Ayers Realtors.

“I probably got my interest in antique autos from my dad,” Ayers added. “He bought a 1948 Ford Woodie new and kept it in the family. I still have it.”

The cars in the show all belong to Miller Beach residents. “We’re showing visitors from out of town what we’ve got here in Miller,” Ayers said.

That will also include local painters, photographers, sculptors, textile artists and many more who will be displaying and selling pieces in store fronts and on the street, where live music will be performed throughout the day.

Bands scheduled to perform include (in order of appearance) Black Jack Blues, Mo’ Beat Blies, AC Williams, and singer/songwriter Johnny V. Hard Cha Cha, a Latin funk rock band, will perform at 444 Grill from 8 to 11 p.m.

Dyer artist Tom Torluemke’s work will be on display at the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts, 540 S. Lake St.

Food vendors will also be available.
