This past weekend Art Con X  attracted  hundreds of artists, buyers and onlookers to brave the cold and come to an old warehouse near Trinity Groves.  The rusted-out warehouse was transformed into an impressively beautiful pop-up gallery and philanthropic gala.  The venue was filled with music and original art from over 150 artists, who created and donated their works for an auction benefiting the Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folkloric.

The walls were lined with 18 x 18 inch plywood boards turned into masterpieces by local artists. Music from Booty Fade, Son of Stan, Happy Bullets and DJ CeePee added to the ambiance. There was also a life size operation game that just may have been the coolest thing ever in the coldest room ever. This was an environment so unique from the normal that is was hard not to overlook the cold and enjoy. (But, really, have I mentioned the cold?) Being honest, watching anyone over 12 on a swing is an environment of joy.

Two simultaneous auctions started up and the masses of people began crowding around the auctioneers. I thought that perhaps some of the huddling was for warmth. But, with every piece selling, and the highest selling piece by Hobbes Vincent selling for an impressive $2,200, the auction was clearly about more than keeping warm.
