Press Release from Shoparooni. If I was anywhere in the Cleavland area, this would be an immediate itinerary priority. Many advanced congratulations to Steve on this awesome and significant contribution to promoting the art of yoyoing. Head over to the Thrown YoYo Blog to see a preview of what to expect at the exibit.
THROWN – Friday July 31
Thrown! Curated By: Steve Brown
July 31 – August 29
Opening reception July 31, 7-10pm
“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 the Shoparooni 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.
Participating artists include: 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), Eric Carlson (WV), Mark Hayward (PA)
For those who cannot attend, all works will be available online after the opening athttp://www.shoparooni.com/store!
