Dinnerware Artspace: Lighter on its feet, 2012

Dinnerware Artspace will be out of the building at 119 E. Toole in another week. The kilns, potters wheels, etching presses, yoga mirrors, photography enlargers, stage segments, rolling display walls, all into a nearby storage facility until their next opportunity for use arises.

What is Dinnerware Artspace now?
We're a pop up artspace redefining vacant spaces in pre-announced locations in downtown Tucson, Arizona, at 76 E. Sixth Street (Benjamin Supply parking lot), downtown parking garages, and in other areas in need of arts and culture activities.

Not to miss a beat, Dinnerware's next event is Monday, January 9th, 2012, at 76 E. Sixth Street, also known as the Benjamin Plumbing Supply parking lot. This is the  Tucson Food Truck Roundup which runs 5 to 9pm and is great fun for the whole family.

We'll have a Bollywood movie projected on the side of the Benjamin Warehouse.
The Wonderfools will entertain kids, as will the kids arts table.
An exhibit of new paintings by Neil Adam Collins.

And it's a full moon night, with clear skies predicted.
