Thom Stevenson will be simulating its contents out of repurposed and found objects. Rabbit Movers ART ATTACK! will exhibit new work by Jaimz Deen. Brooke David presents Delicate Materials, a series of rendered images of armor and edible chocolate sculptures, and Anonymous Gallery will stage their multi-media shop in a vintage 1964 Airstream Tradewind.
