The Button Mashers


Really debated about writing up this article, but, I’ll give it a shot.

atypicalLIVING Creative Partners, in association with Grace Bible Church Pearlside’s Youth Ministries and OlaNui!, present the first big art show of the Summer 2009.

“The Button Mashers” is a mixed media show, fusing together art of all sorts in a one-of-a-kind, video-game themed setting.  The Ward Warehouses provide the backdrop for an exploration of work from new and emerging artists on the scene, many of whom will be displaying for the first time.

Also, this show has a video game element, as there will be live, interactive video-game displays (that means there will be video games you can play) and a Street Fighter IV (PS3) tournament.

The battle element doesn’t stop there, as there will also be a B-Boy Battle (hosted by GoodGuyJames and DJ enJAY), a musicians battle, and a unique live painting element that must be seen to be understood, featuring Shaun Castro, Philippe Quinal, Janel Natividad & RZone.

Finally, there will be live performances, vendor booths, a food booth, and a whole bunch more. Including a DJ Liger Dance Party.

Did I mention the video games yet?

This all goes down this SATURDAY NIGHT from 5-11PM at OlaNui! on 760 Halekauwila Street, adjacent to Logos Books, near Ward Center.  Admission is $5 and all proceeds go to benefit the GBC Summer Youth Camp.

This will be a big event, so please roll through and show your support for the kids.

Big UPS to all the sponsors of “The Button Mashers”: Grace Bible Church Pearlside, OlaNui!, Redefine, Prolifik, lightsleepers, First Lady The Movement & Prototype.
