    Custom Vinyl Show

    D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) Vinyls are the blank canvas of collectible toys. Starting as a lifeless shape, artists conjureup characters with their creative tools, transforming thesefigures into unique toys bearing the mark of their creator.While most shows that feature these artists D.I.Y.s showseveral artists versions of the same given blank toy, thiscustomized vinyl show will turn the tables by highlightingthe work of this mediums leading artists with various toys.G40 will team up with Vinyl Artist, Sket-One to show thecountless possibilities explored by these artists; fromsimply painting the figures such as KidRobots Munny, tomorphing the collectibles beyond their vinyl beginnings.

    Skateboard Art Show Skateboards have long been the means of expression for the skateboarding community.With close ties to the beginnings of the newbrow art scene in California, the artistry seenon skatedecks as far back as the 1970sstrongly influenced members of thismovement. For this reason we pay respectto this community by exploring the manypossibilities of the skatedeck as work of art.Used in various media, from illustration tothree-dimensional sculpture, the board is theconnecting theme and protagonist

    throughout these pieces.

    Wheatpaste Show Wheat paste is an adhesive made of vegetable starch and water that has been

    used for centuries as a means of adheringpaper to a surface. The unique quality of thispaste is its ability to stick while still allowingfor peeling off without ripping. Historically,the adhesive was used by activists andvarious subculture proponents for flypostpropaganda and for advertisement posters.In the Street Art culture this paste is used asa means of adhering works, previouslycreated on paper, to a city wall. For thisreason, this art form is known as

    wheatpasting. We will exhibit the work of artists pushing the envelope in this evolvingart form.

    Stencil Show Stencil art has long been used by streetartists as the weapon of choice forexpressing themselves on the endlesscanvas of the urban fabric. Because of theneed for quickness in public spaces, stencilsbegan as simple cut outs and only involvedone or few layers of stencils. With the spreadof the new brow art movement stencils haveevolved to become an involved process withsometimes as many as 350 layers. Thisgroup show will highlight the freshestmethods and techniques as well as the evergrowing subject matter portrayed by theseartists

    Mural Show Scale has the power to alter perception.Larger than life scale creates a feeling of surrealism, as the viewer becomes awarethat what the eye is seeing is unreal. Thismural show will challenge a group of artiststo create an 8 x 16 work of art. Thesepieces will allow the one to step into the

    artists creation through their colossal scaleand create an environment that is otherworldly for the viewer.

    John L. Sullivan Themed Show John L. Sullivan, also known as the BostonStrong Boy is last heavyweight champion of bare-knuckle boxing back in the 1800's. He

    was the first American sports hero tobecome a national celebrity and the firstAmerican athlete to earn over one milliondollars. With over 450 fights under his belt

    he is the stuff of legends. We bring back this legend 130 years later with the first groupart show honoring this American icon. With over 40 artist interpretations of this figure,the representations of the lost art form of good ole bare-knuckle fighting will be diverseand always legendary.

    Accenture Development Partnerships and Accenture Sustainability Services would like to invite you to aninteractive panel discussion to celebrate the launch of their new and innovative report entitled,"Convergence Economy: Rethinking International Development in a Converging World ."

    The report proposes that some of the world's most intractable problems, including childhood malnutrition,climate change, and the lack of access to clean water, cannot be solved solely by the traditional aid-basedapproach. Instead, overcoming these challenges requires a greater degree of convergence amongbusinesses, NGOs, and governments to align the power of market forces with development outcomes thatcreate mutual and sustainable value for all constituents.

    In essence, these groups must replace short-term, event-driven cooperation with an on-going, sharedcommitment to mutual benefit and the creation of "systems solutions." Put simply, Accenture is seeing
