Hands down the Smash Art show was a smashing success! Bad puns aside, we really appreciate everyone who got a chance to be a part of the festivities. Seriously, everyone had a blast engaging with these sculptural works. Whether 3 years old or 60 years young, participant or onlooker, every attendee found something enchanting about stickin’ it to the man(made object). For anyone who missed it, here are some of the highlights of the evening.
An FAS member puts his curating expertise to the test.Artists and friends put the finishing touches on their handmade works.
Pinata boxing gloves, anyone?A political pinata based around the idea of Reaganomics and the trickle down effect (of course it had money inside- what else?!).Guests putting their pinata prizes to use- that’s right, those are psychedelic glasses you’re seeing!An anxious participant looks uncertain at the prospect of this pinata being made of paper mache. Turns out it was a real watermelon! The artists here were playing with the idea of decoys- taking a watermelon and trickin’ it out to look like a fake watermelon. The gallery smelled real good after this baby exploded! An installation of many of the busted pinatas of the evening- plus the device we rigged to hold them up while the visitors had at ’em.
Good times right? Smashing good times!
