CART, a convenience-store-themed art exhibition mounted at Current, actively encourages art purchase in its very design. Transforming the gallery into a fully functioning artisan minimarket, exhibiting artists present art multiples, including zines, postcards, original drawings, paintings, and crafts created and exhibited in a series. Whether you are looking for affordable artwork to hang in your home or hand-made goods, including tote bags, jewelry, plush objects, and edibles, CART is the place to find it. Items, which range in price from cents to $300, are even shrink-wrapped and price-tagged to reinforce their purchasability.
