Scott Michael Ackerman’s art card series set the tone for the opening night of the CARTWHEEL’s Mini Art Fair Street & Outsider Art Pop Up Show:

Take pictures

so  we did–and so did our friends! And we’ll have more coming from the rest of the weekend, including Kashmere live at PROJECT Gallery,  Saturday yoga, and Sunday’s family fun day with more live music and art projects for kids and parents!

Our mini art fair-style show, curated by CARTWHEEL and produced collaboratively with PROJECT Gallery and Art Duet, opened Thursday, March 21, with a VIP preview on the 20th. In attendance both nights were featured artists Lydia Emily, Scott Michael Ackerman, Lyle Carbajal, Evo Love, Roy Gonzalez and Corey Hagberg, all of whom who will be at the gallery through the Mini Art Pop Up weekend. Expect to see more of these featured artists,  plus Greg Haberny and RADICAL!, on CARTWHEEL in coming months. Check out the photos here–and on our Facebook page!
