Artgasm: This Weekend's Art Openings, October 22 - 24, 2010
What's better than art? Wearable art! This Saturday bring a t-shirt to Cherokee Street's Firecracker Press and choose a one-color woodblock design -- the same used for their posters -- to have printed on it for their Spooky Threads event. If you don't have a blank shirt a selection of pre-printed ones will be available to choose from. Why hang a poster on a wall when you can wear it around everywhere you go? Get details on this event and more in the list below.
