Gallery Show – CandleNight (Magnifying Freedom) @ Makii Masaru Fine Arts, Tokyo

CandleNight, Tokyo Milky Way, Magnifying Freedom art show @ Makii Masaru Fine Arts, Tokyo, opens June 19, 2009

Tokyo’s own version of the Milky Way will take place on the evening of Saturday, June 20, 2009, scattered all over the city. Each star will be formed by a candle, and thus each person will be a star. Or maybe a solar system. My kanji is rusty. In any case, the event looks to be a really fun way to celebrate the city and to bring a little attention to the environment.

As part of the festivities, I’ve joined in a group show at Makii Masaru Fine Arts with a bunch of totally radical artists and illustrators. We’ll be up on the 2nd floor, displaying a selection of work (which will be available for sale), and joining in with the Candlenight fun. Here’s the relevant info:
