This is a press release from SpankyStokes.com. It talks about Steve Brown’s new art exhibit to be seen at the Shoparooni store (and website) . I am really excited about this, because the YoYo community has some of the most unique and creative individuals I have ever met. Way to go Steve!
“Thrown” is an exhibit of yo-yo related artwork, created entirely by yo-yo players!
Ink drawings, paintings, airbrush, silkscreen, customized yo-yos, and plenty more from a motley assemblage of yo-yo players young and old will take over theShoparooni Annex.
Yo-Yos are a creative endeavour that is generally abandoned with youth. Through this assemblage of works from adults and young adults who never stopped playing, we hope to present the art of yo-yo play as seen through the eyes of the people who never gave it up. Also, there will be beer. Honestly a Yo-Yo show, how cool is that, and I am into the name for the show “Thrown” AWESOME!

Seth Peterson (IA), Mark McBride (CA), John Higby (MA), Krisgoat (OR), Steve Brown (OH), Sonny Patrick (CA), Drew Tetz (MO), Jensen Kimmitt (Canada), Doc Pop (CA), Paul Escolar (CA), Ashkahn Shahparnia (CA), Eric Carlson (WV), Saxton Moore (OH), Mark Hayward (PA)
