Behind Closed Dollaz

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Hey, don’t forget to come to my awesome non-garage “WGRoHC Day” sale Sat May 17.
And also don’t forget to catch the new show at the International Hotel:

It just opened May 10, so you’re free to swing by the venerable I Hotel gallery in the next month or two to check out Behind Closed Dollars, the latest show in their “Globalization: Response & Responsibility“-themed exhibitions! As you can see from the image below, Galleon Traderette Johanna Poethig is showing some of the work that came out of the Galleon Trade excursion from last summer. The auxiliary events look great, too. Check ‘em out.
