The 5th annual Wreck The Halls (WTH) exhibition is the “not-so-holiday” holiday show where local artists create and build the holiday monstrosities they always wanted to build and you always wanted to see!  And again, we are clearing up our walls for demented holiday wall art!

GUIDELINES/RULES: There are none! Well, other than your submission MUST contain some form of December holiday/seasonal theme. Other than that, go crazy.
ARTWORK: Wall, pedestal and freestanding art does not need to light up or be animated, but we would love to see it generally assault the viewer’s senses.
