Last night I went to the Scion Installation 6 Art Tour opening at the Pink Hobo Gallery in NE.
This year they were featuring video art, which is a large change from the usual paintings/drawings that they typically exhibit. The video artists include Dust la Rock (Brooklyn, NY), Eric Nakamura (Los Angeles, CA), Saelee Oh (Los Angeles, CA), French (London, England), Josh Graham (New York, NY), Monihan Monihan (New York, NY), Mark Mothersbaugh (Los Angeles, CA), PMKFA (Tokyo, Japan), Sage Vaughn (Los Angeles, CA) and Ill-Studio (Paris, France).
Outside of the gallery was a Scion music truck. It looked like a street food-vendor truck, but instead of hot dogs and french fries, you could download music for free. It was really cool actually; I've never seen anything else like it before.
In addition to free music, we also picked up a free goodie bag, which included this really cool retro-stylized travel magazine.
I ran into 2 very good friends from MCAD that I hadn't seen in nearly 3 years, so we decided to stop off for a night cap together and catch up before parting ways again. It was so much fun!
On our way back from the bar it started snowing! It was nuts! Snowing in May... only in the midwest.
If you missed the opening, you can still check out the work. The show is up until May 21st.
