THIS SATURDAY - Small Wonders 5 - An Exhibition of Tiny Art & Films


On Saturday July 08 2017 at Atomic Cafe Gallery in Hamtramck comes a grand event of tiny proportions called “Small Wonders – An Exhibition of Tiny Art“.  This curated exhibition will feature 78 works fine works in various mediums from artists local and international, created with only one guideline in mind…all artwork must 5 inches and under.
Now in its 5th year, Small Wonders has grown to include a small festival of 15 film shorts and a gallery of artists creating tiny art live.  And returning once again, the smooth lounge singer extraordinaire Konrad Lee (close friend of Satori Circus) will be singing a selection of tiny themed songs.  And tiny desserts!
Admission is $5 and all ages are welcome.  We look forward to seeing you there!
