Artfully Fun (January 10, 2017) Art Monkeys – an organization that promotes art as something fun, accessible to everyone, and capable of social change – celebrated its grand opening with a party at its home, The Creative Labs.

Folks not only checked out the work of a variety of artists, but could actually watch them working…or become a work of art themselves (if they weren’t already!), thanks to some creative face-painting.
