Cinco de Mayhem 2014: coming soon!

In May 2013, we invited over two dozen local artists to design and build their very own piñatas to be displayed and destroyed right here in our CO Exhibitions gallery. We saw everything from Viking ships to wild birds to DeLoreans to baby seals to Game of Thrones characters to oversized potatoes. Art lovers bought "Smash Tickets" for the rights to step up and swing at the piñatas and we ended up raising several hundred dollars for local food bank Second Harvest Heartland. It was one of the most fun and creative nights we've ever seen go down at CO ... and we wanna do it all over again!

Cinco de Mayhem: A Smashing Success!

If you were here at CO Exhibitions for Cinco De Mayhem this past Saturday, you know what an incredible night it was. From the completely over-the-top piñata designs to the elation of the crowd all night long to the tissue paper and glitter-splattered aftermath, this was definitely one for the history books.

And if all that wasn't good enough, here's a little bonus: Thanks to everyone who paid to swing at the piñatas, we raised about $300 which we will be donating to Second Harvest Heartland! Thank you Twin Cities! For those of you who missed it, we will now attempt to recreate the magic through photos and video, captured by our awesome gallery attendees.
