We had a huge turnout for the Magnet Open Art Project at the Minor Threat Pop-Up Gallery on Friday night. Everyone loved how the magnets were exhibited on salvaged fridge doors. The show looked terrific!

The children were especially enthralled with the concept and were anxious to go downtown on Saturday morning to treasure hunt for a special piece of art that they loved.

David and Laurette Carroll, two of our featured artists, also had artwork in the Gallery.

The next morning, we were out bright and early posting the magnets up and down Main Street.

Tom Hosmer and Laura Morrison post the first batch.
All day long, tiny pieces of contemporary art were sprinkled up and down Main Street.

Collectors were careful to take only one magnet and you could see them thoughtfully considering their choice. It was incredibly rewarding to see how happy collectors were with their treasures.

The Magnet Open Art Project would like to thank all of the incredibly talented artists who participated in the project. We were honored that you were willing to share your artwork with the world in such a generous manner.
