Putting the "art" in "cartridge."

What do you get when you mix art with NES cartridges? Artcade, an inaugural art show at Spacebar Arcade. For $5 per cartridge, artists were set loose to create whatever they wanted. "We felt like it would be something they could really sink their teeth in and let their creativity run wild," said bar manager Will Hay, who organized the event with bartender Brad Bentley. A cash prize will be awarded on Thursday, March 5, when a panel of judges (which includes our own Amy Atkins) will select "Best in Show." Prizes from local businesses like Prestige Skateshop, Record Exchange, Rediscovered Bookshop, All About Games, Treefort Music Fest, Grind Modern Burger, PostModern Brewers and more will be awarded in other categories. Proceeds from the silent auction, open through Tuesday, March 31, will be split 50/50 between artists and Extra Life children's charity.
