Since the late 80s there has been an ongoing monthly ARTS movement landing on the 1st Friday of every month. At least that’s what Wikipedia stated. With the intent to brighten up the darkest parts of the city with beautiful colors, lots of people and of course mind altering paintings and performances that will help one to pause and appreciate the beauty of life. While nerding out on social and political views of our civilized society!
You are cordially invited to come support such a movement with worldclass artists hailing from the Southwest regions of this North American paradise.

Being a gateway to all directions of the compass, many cultures have exchanged styles, technique and visions thru drum beats, dance, wall art and story telling as in Hueco Tanks and the Organ Mountains are blessed with many pieces from different crews since way before timex had your wrists locked.
The first show…

Special shout out to my man Asphate Woodhavet of Maxilla Blue for the invite and his ninja abilities in creating swords out of irons in the fire.
