Our nation's birthday isn't stopping Aurora Coffee, Eyedrum, and MINT Gallery from putting on a weekend full of killer group shows while Dodekapus raises funds for Living Walls. Check out the details after the jump.
With all of Eyedrum
's recent exhibitions now finished, the space has nothing hanging on the black walls (painted that way for the Obscura group show). All day today from 10 am until 10 pm, artists will draw on the walls with chalk to create an installation that will last the month of July. Participating artists include Baxter Crane, Spencer Murrill, Mandie Turner Mitchell, Maxwell Sebastian, Ed Windsor, and Priscilla Smith. The back room will be reserved for Eyedrum's literary committee for a "text only" version of the experiment.

, the latest group show at MINT Gallery, features work "created by some of America's finest citizens" and "inspired by our beloved country." The gallery is even inviting guests to "Come out and salute the flag, have a PBR, and be proud to be an American." I detect sarcasm. Except about the PBR. MINT Gallery is definitely not sarcastic about PBR. The show, curated by Ben Goldman, features a long list of names including Sam Parker, The Palifox Legend, Preston Snyder, and more.
