A few months ago we threw together an impromptu Art-A-Whirl inspired photo shoot at the Northeast art studio of our talented friends Drew, Isaac, and Eric. We set the shoot time for Midnight on a Friday night and invited some of our favorite art scene staples and creative lovelies to show up, share a cocktail, and vamp for the cam. The concept is meant to convey the colorful, exuberant, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants atmosphere that Art-A-Whirl creates.
Watch for our Art-A-Whirl 2009 guide, out later today, that will feature special events, gallery openings, parties and more -- basically, everything ART-A-WHIRL.
Like the art you see in these photos? You can see it, buy it, and rub elbows with the artists this weekend!
