Time to bust out the paper mâché and wicked sense of humor -- Bragg's Pie Factory in Phoenix just announced the deadline and viewing dates for its 2011 Mutant Pinata show.
The pinata show is an annual event and an annual home to outrageous, political, corny, sentimental, and fun creations that perch, lie, fly and hang from the factory's ceiling. This year's show will be on view March 4 and 18 (First and Third Friday) through April 8 (Third Friday).
The requirements: You have to wheel, drag or carry your creation to Bragg's Pie Factory, 1301 Grand Ave, by March 1 -- no candy or bat required. And you must fill out the application, which is a total cinch. There's no entry fee, and 70 percent of the pinata's sale price (optional) will go to the artist, while 30 percent goes back to venue upkeep.
For more information, check out the event's Facebook page, download the application here (or you can pick one up from Kooky Krafts at 1500 W Grand Ave.) and check out our slideshows from the 2008, 2009, and 2010 pinata shows.
