On the Circuit: Converse 1Hundred Artists

Last night, those crazy kids from Converse (and Radar) decided to throw a little shimmy to celebrate their 1Hundred initiative, bringing artists from around the world together to fight HIV/AIDS. Good cause. Good party. The Open House Gallery on Mulberry Street was the spot, with Thurston Moore manning the decks for the first few hours. Heinekens and vodka were the drinks, and the space was set up for a user friendly experience, with party goers able to grab a marker and contribute their own drawings various walls and chucks scattered throughout the space. It allowed everyone to express deep hidden feelings and words that people are normally too reserved to share with the public. Or it mainly helped keep everyone away from the bars and food. Probably the latter.

Anyway, the party was really quite fun. And it was for a good cause. And a lot of people got to take home Converse. So we say huzzah.
