FRIDAY APRIL 5, 2019 // 5:00 – 8:00 P.M.
MAINFRAME STUDIOS // 900 KEO WAY // DOWNTOWN DES MOINES
Always free, family-friendly and open to the public.
Get ready for a Los Angeles-centric open studio event featuring a cast of characters and fun products on display, created by acclaimed artists Jay Vigon and Margo Nahas.
Jay and Margo are resurrecting their popular “Made on Earth” Studio City store they owned in the 90s where every type of product was blazoned with unique characters the artists developed. Visitors will get a rare glimpse of personalities such as Clever Girl, Sleepy Kitty, It’s Good to be King, Pound Dog, Little Angel and Rat Dog on T-shirts, purses, Zippo lighters, patches, chairs and more. Prints and limited edition T-shirts will be for sale.
The husband and wife team are also well known for designing famous album covers like Prince’s Purple Rain, Van Halen’s 1984 and Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk. Read about their 2018 Art of Vinyl open studio event here.
Event festivities include a special dinner menu by The Tangerine Food Company, music by the rock band English and, of course, over 65 artist studios to visit. The party starts at 5:00 pm on Friday, April 5!
