Giant Robot (9th St. between 1st and A) is hosting Dime Bag 3, curated by artists Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens, in which over 200 artists in a variety of disciplines have been invited to create artworks specifically
designed to be exhibited in 3-inch plastic bags: dime bags. Each artist
was sent one of the symbolic baggies and asked to fill it in any way
they wished. One of the artists included in the show is Valeriya Volkova, an artist and illustrator who sent us a link to her intriguing paintings and illustrations.
If you are an artist living on the LES or working on a project related to the LES, please let us know!
