Thomas Walton’s Art Party

The man behind the award-winning Pageboy Magazine, Thomas Walton, is at it again. He sent me THIS today:


Please join PageBoy Magazine this Sunday (Dec 13) for the inaugural episode of Art Party.

What it is: an art party with visual art and video by Sara Long. Prose by Stacey Levine.
Poetry by Paul Nelson. Comedy by Ryan Casey and Doug Gale. Plus: the world’s first ever Hanging Bookshop!

What we want to do: counteract the disappearance of art spaces, bookshops, galleries, etc. throughout the city, and their systematic replacement with sterile architecture, sterile businesses, and profiteering development.

How we’re going to do it: by holding art parties in temporary open spaces within apartment buildings, commercial buildings, donated spaces, etc.

Why we want to do it: art makes for healthy cities, and healthy citizens; aesthetics matter!

Where: this first event to be held at 729 10th Ave E #1 (Capitol Hill)

When: Sunday 12/13 at 7 p.m.

Look forward to seeing you there,

-The Editors.
