Uncapped: ‘OUT THE BOX’ with Hand-Painted Kicks

Posted on: February 10th, 2022 at 5:08 am by

Boogie Fam! How goes it? If you’ve been following our Instagram lately, you may have seen our latest art show promotion! Last Friday, we curated and hosted the Out The Box Show at the Thames Art Center in Bushwick.

The show was wonderful. Seeing the artwork these exceptionally talented people created was well worth venturing out in the hail, snow and rain.

Seventeen artists; one to three hand-painted pairs of kicks and, of course, the boxes they came in. Good people, great vibes, amazing art. Deepest gratitude to:

Frankie Botz
Spar One

As always, a massive thank you to Brass for the custom signs, vinyls, displays, cups, and all other decorations. If you need anything printed and I do mean anything, hit up BRASSBK on Instagram. That’s all for now, folks!
