Capturing the idea of everyday objects as art—more specifically that base urge to put a Sharpie to our Chuck Taylors—MN4MN’s Blank Canvas Exhibition kicks off tonight at the Public Functionary. The show brought together 13 local artists and 13 local photographers for a two-phase art project centering on sneakers, and each artist was given a pair of sneakers to create from and that creation was given to the photographer to photograph. Considering all the great artists we have floating around Twincy, the outcomes should be fun, interesting and thought-provoking. Tonight’s opening will also have a DJ (Chuck Chizzle) and all of the coolest local artists, art lovers, fashionistas and photographers in attendance. 6-10 PM. Free, but RSVP. —Jillian Finkelson
