WHAT IS A RENT PARTY? At the time of the Great Migration north (1910-1930), blacks emigrating from the south settled the problem of Harlem’s inflated rents by throwing parties. Furniture was moved to the outside walls, musicians and refreshments were brought in, card tables were set up out of the way of the dance floor, and the doors were opened in exchange for a few bucks.

In an effort to relieve stress on our monthly budget, the Pomerene Center has adopted/adapted the Rent Party to help meet our monthly gas bill. YES! We open our doors at 6:45pm on First Friday evenings, October-April and present great acoustic music– great times (especially if you bring your friends!) –surrounded by great art. Suggested donation $10 at the door.  Make your reservation by contacting us @  740.622.0326 or
