The Plaza District is very excited to welcome Backpacks with a Purpose to LIVE. BWAP will be throwing a launch party to kick off their new retail line of backpacks. For every one backpack sold through BWAP, two will be donated to a non-profit in need. During this event, this Oklahoma-based company will also have a photo booth, DJ, and giveaways of t-shirts, gift certificates, and food – all from local businesses.
We have got a lot of great local artist talent in this community! Stop into IVC Galleries for this month’s featured artist Mikul Anderson. Mikul’s work is described as “a wonderful and dream-like interpretation of the beautiful city and landscapes of Oklahoma.” The Salvage Room will be hosting local photographer, Ross Adams and his series of photos, “My Stupid Life.” Be sure to pop into DNA Galleries for featured art from Bombs Away, they will have several prints available for sell as well. Max from Bomb Shelter and Dig It have teamed up this month to bring an extra special window display as well as the release of Bomb Shelter’s new artbook, “Monsters.” The series of images and installations have been on display over the past few months during LIVE. Tree & Leaf will also debut the first of many poster print artists. Each month, T&L will host a new artist and premiere a special screen printed poster of the artists work. For June, the artist will be Alesa Clymer, whose work features whimsical animals painted and illustrated beautifully.
