The 2nd AOK (Art of Kraft) pop-up art show went down last week and it’s safe to say it was another successful show!

If you haven’t made it out to an AOK event yet, please try to swing by this next one: Thursday, June 7th.  And yeah, I know the hours are a bit funky being that they are only from 12pm-4pm…. but look, these shows help build the art community of the Coachella Valley from the ground up – especially for us younger people who are trying to come up.  If people come out and support then more and more and more of these types of events will start happening (and at better hours) – I guarantee you.

However, whether or not you were able to make it last week, the show went off really well.  Rick Rodriguez had a sold our show and Aaron Hansen sold many of his pieces as well.  We even sold some AOK t-shirts, some Alf Alpha t-shirts, some Coachella Art Studios t-shirts and I also think some Ancient Youth and ANTA tees were purchased as well.  The free DIY craft table was in full effect and DJ Alf Alpha didn’t miss a beat.  Sitting under the lightly shaded trees, sipping my spicy tequila concoction and looking at art all afternoon… I really couldn’t complain!

The next one, this upcoming June, will be the last one of this series!  So come out!

Here is a photo recap of what went down at the

Event RECAP: AOK (Art of Kraft) – May

About:

As you may or may not know, AO (Art of Kraft) is a new monthly that The Coachella Valley Art Scene has in collaboration with BIRBA.  It is a monthly showcase that hopes to serve as a vehicle to help connect local business owners with artists and other artist with each other. It is our goal to create a container that’s supports creativity and access to our diverse community.

The Artists involved will be producing unique works at an accessible and reasonable price specifically for this once monthly event. This is a great opportunity for artists to purchase other artists work. In addition 90% of all sales will go directly to artist and the other 10% will go directly to a local non-profit of Birba’s choice.
