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.
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 Spraygraphic.com 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...
