OLY OLY OXEN FREE
An Art Event Inspired by the Culture That Pulsates Throughout Grand Junction

7pm – 8pm iCal
601 Pitkin Avenue
Grand Junction CO 81501
This event was created with the conception that there is a world of creativity that lies at the surface of our town. The small town feel that allows factions of this populace to coalesce, is also that which creates the illusion of unity among the arts communities. There are many branches of the arts here that are comprised of creative thinkers, makers, and doers. The branches stem from many different trees that require diverse sources of nourishment. The new school and the old school, the visceral and the conceptual, the intuitive and learned, all exist here and in a multitude of combinations yet do not necessarily come together.
It is time to enter a new realm of community art. Out of intrigue and the awareness of a cultural spectrum, although quite unaware of the expanses to where it leads, OLY OLY OXEN FREE will create a space in the attempt to lure artists from there underground studios and stockpiles of work out into the perception of their public. Artists need not worry about entry fees or commission dues. Keeping in mind that this event is privately funded, artists interested in selling or trading their work are encouraged to do so at a price that suits not only themselves, but also their admirers.
