January Exhibit: BFF2

BFF2

A Group Exhibit of Friends 
January 11-February 9, 2020

BYOB Opening Reception
Saturday, January 11, 7-10pm

Featuring Blutt, Peabe, Eric Broers, Veggiesomething, Joey D, Joey Potts, Ken Keirns, Revise CMW, Scott Shellhamer & Shawnimal

Back in 2007 we held an exhibit by a bunch of Chicago artists that were regulars during the early days of Rotofugi...a real diverse bunch of people that had come together around their love of art and declared for the world to know: we're BFFs!

This January we're getting the gang back together again. Over the last 13 years they've spread across the United States, but each and everyone is still making art and we're excited to have all ten BFFs in this new exhibit!

Join us for the opening reception and pop-up shop on Saturday, January 11, 7-10pm to check out the new works and enjoy music by DJ Sean Doe plus complimentary snacks and soft drinks (BYOB if you want to have alcohol). 

For BYOB, we are steps away from Beermiscuous, one of Chicago's best craft beer shops — 350 cold beers and ciders (over 200 local beers!) are available in a singles format, allowing you to create your own mix-and-match variety pack for the event!

Exhibit continues through February 9, 2020.

Sign up for gallery previews at http://previews.rotofugi.com for first chance to purchase artwork.
