Arty Girl: The Mini Mini Art Show

Hey, I get that this next weekend is art detour and everyone is busy losing their minds about it. And, trust me, New Times will do a wonderful job of covering it. So today, I'm gonna hit you with something non-art-detour oriented...but, such no promises for Wednesday and Friday, btw.

I picked up a flier the other day for "the mini mini", an art show put on by  (the same dudes who did this), Cartel Coffee Lab and Wet Paint Art Store.

If you're interested in going, here's the deal: the entire show features art pieces that are exactly 4 in. by 4 in. This ranges from paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, graphic design, fibers and any other crazy crap an artist wants to shove into a little square.

The show opens Saturday, March 7th at Cartel coffee lab in Tempe with an opening party from 8 p.m. - 11 p.m. and then moves to Conspire in downtown Phoenix for the month of April.

Now, if you're interested in participating, you still can. You've got a couple days to whip up something in time for the deadline, Thursday, March 5th. Like I said it's gotta be 4 in. by 4 in. and it has to be able to hang on a wall. And, you have to have a profile to participate (don't worry, it's free) and you can pick up a 4 in. by 4 in. canvas at Wet Paint if you need to.

Yes, I get that this is last minute. But if you're a real artist, you won't start it until Wednesday night anyway...

"The mini mini 4in by 4in art show" opens Saturday, March 7th from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. at Cartel coffee lab, 225 W University Dr., Ste 101 in Tempe, 480-225-3899,
