A R T O F F - A mass art collaboration!

As a bid farewell to our pop-up shop, Designers Marketplace decided to go out with a bit of a bang and celebrate the occasion by inviting everyone down for a huge art collaboration.

For one night and one day only we teamed up with an exciting bunch of creative geniuses such as THE WEDNESDAY PROJECT, SURFACE//PHILIA, THE CLOUD COMMISSION, MALARKY, AUDREY NEWHOUSE, TUBBYPHUNK and a bunch of others for an evening of AWESOME music aand free-style drawing.

What a fun night we all had...and we're thinking there will be many more where that one came from!
