6018 north is in our neighborhood. i'd walked by here many times without realizing that it was an INCREDIBLE conceptual artspace! omg! click their link! VISIT THIS PLACE!! go see their piece at expo at the end of the month!!
such a great space! if you visit on a weekend, you are going there. and then i will take you to metropolis cause you're gonna need something to drink while you bask in the kick assness of the art you've just seen.
