Art Rock at Armory Art Center Was a Room of Awesome
Photo by Reed Fischer The pretty, colorful Mosaic was a good precursor to what we would find inside
Art Rock transformed Armory Art Center into the art version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory
this past Saturday. Artwork was on the walls, on tables, on people, and
in jars. It was in the form of jewelry, paintings, magnets, skateboards,
and cupcakes. Put on by Stitch Rock's Amanda
Linton, this event gave everybody the opportunity to strut out the door
with artwork in hand (for instance, postcards sold for $2). The solid turnout and
feedback "reassures that people want this and that makes me happy,"
Linton said after the event. But a subtler perk at Art Rock was found.
You could also shop for your future tattoo artist. Meet some artists
