Applying for a Popup Grant for the first Tiny Galleries

Bob and I have applied for a local PopUp Grant, and are excited about the possibility of building two of these PopUp Tiny Galleries in our community of Santa Rosa, California. Bob has designed a simple cabinet design with a keycode entry. Artists obtain the keycode, bring a piece of art, and swap it for a piece to take home. In this way, the show in the Tiny Gallery is crowd-curated. We look forward to the opportunity to build these and see what the artists in our community can do with them.
