…These and many more of today’s best Underground Artists have been asked to customize a 40oz Beer Bottle in any way they see fit. Many of the artists have made their own label, thus creating their “own brand” of beer. Many have painted the bottles or collaged onto them. Many others have completely transformed the bottles into sculptures and art objects.
The Opening Party, on Saturday March 19th (7-10pm) will be a Cash & Carry event, meaning that buyers will be able to take their purchase home that same night. Prices start at only $40, making the art affordable to all collectors!
As a special treat on Opening Night, MF Gallery will also be selling Limited Edition Collector’s “MF 40’s”. These bottles will be full of beer, which can be consumed at the party, or taken home to be enjoyed at a later date.
In addition to plenty of beer, refreshments will be served, and punk/heavy metal music will be blasted! Most of the artists will be in attendance. Admission is free and open to all ages... 21+ to drink.
