DOUBTING THOMAS – 856 Jefferson

Music, dance and art come together with a variety of musicians and dancers along with a range of video and other artists. Come see the CLOTH WOMB. Come experience the BED OF NAILS (a work in response to the pervasiveness of sexual assault in modern America). Come hear AMPLIFIED PLANTS. A processional throughout the gallery and onto the street may ensue.

LOOP – 2180 W 11th
Jordan Wong—PANTHEON
Wong has created a series of large works inspired by the concept of deities and continued personal approach of automatic drawing (from the subconscious) mixed with illustration (depicting recognizable imagery). Each piece is composed of Asian cultural references, abstract musings, and hidden motifs reminiscent of comics, video games, and Japanese animation.

818 STUDIOS – 818 Jefferson Ave. (above Fahrenheit)
