Pabst Blue Ribbon and Paul Friedrich present: the PBaRt Show & Concert

and PAUL FRIEDRICH present:
the PBaRt Show & Concert

Local celebrity artist Paul Friedrich has teamed up with the iconic beer company Pabst Blue Ribbon to present North Carolina’s first PBaRt Show at Designbox Gallery on May 7, 2010 from 7pm-11pm.

Friedrich, creator of the Eisner-nominated Onion Head Monster, and PBR have organized 17 of Raleigh’s top Low Def Pop artists in one recession proof exhibit. All artwork is priced $25, $50 or $100 and includes limited edition PBR themed originals.

And, that’s not all: three local bands will play an exclusive outdoor concert while live graffiti artwork is created for additional visual stimulation and eventual silent auction. The Only Burger food truck will be there for the hungry, Locopops ($2), and the Carolina Hurricanes Storm Squad for fun. Speaking of fun, there will also be a retro photo booth—free for First Friday art enthusiasts.

Admission is free, arrive early to guarantee entry.

A suggested $3-5 donation will be greatly appreciated and accepted on behalf of the Visual Art Exchange [501(c)3] and SPARKcon.
