About Us

Meet Us
Black Vulture Project is a project in Paoli, Indiana that is meant to connect with the art community and host creators of all kinds. We host music events, art openings, concerts, film screenings, and workshops.

Our team is led by Tim, Kara, and Andrew, along with our trusty dogs Rye, Leon, and Mr. Pants.


Our History
Constructed in 1925 as the Tomato Factory, our main warehouse was originally used to produce the first tomato juice under factory conditions.

Our name comes from the black vultures that used to nest on our building and still live around the site to this day.


Coming Soon

Black Vulture Project has big plans for the upcoming years. We are looking to renovate and expand our art presence in Paoli. Read about our projects below.

Tomato Products Company Coffee Shop & Gallery Residency Houses
Previously, the first place in the US to produce canned tomato products, this factory is being converted to a space for festivals, art exhibits, and concerts. The Tomato Factory can be rented out for any celebration or event you need. Paoli’s first coffee shop. It will be a place to relax and have a cup of coffee while also doubling as a public gallery space. A place for artists to reside while creating their work.
