Pin That Shit – A Creative Affair to Show Off Your Flair

Pin That Shit is not your typical gallery show, but these small creations make big on their statements and style. We've asked over 60 artists from across the globe to participate in our Design Week gala for the sake of arts education. All of the pins will be up for sale with funds going towards our efforts to support this cause. The coolest thing about the show is that so many of the artists submitted 10 of their best pins from their collections. That means we will have over 600 unique pins from some of your favorite designers all in one room!

The doors open at 4pm for our Open House, buying begins at 6pm, and the show ends at 9pm.
COME IN AND WEAR YOUR FLAIR, MAKE SOME BADGES OF YOUR OWN, HAVE BEER, AND BUY SOME PINS!!! The Taco Pedlar will be making street tacos from 5:30-8:30!

Most pins will go for $10 a piece, so if you haven't started your collection, this will be a good time!
