Urban Decay 5: Opening Night Recap

UrbanDecay_14_webSaturday, June 7 2014 was the opening night for Urban Decay 5 at The Fridge in Washington DC.  2014 marked the fifth anniversary of Urban Decay, which features a cross section of contemporary low brow artists from the DC region and abroad.  Curated by Deb Yarrington of Urban Art Syndicate, Urban Decay highlights contemporary artwork that is born from a generation of artists raised on pop culture, hot rod art, tattoo art, and skateboarding. PONSHOP is proud to be one of the sponsors for this year's event and coordinated the live artist demonstrations in front of the gallery during the opening reception.  Thanks to all contributing Urban Decay 5 artists, Urban Art Syndicate, The Fridge, and Bass Radio.FM and Expansion Broadcast.  Below are pics from the opening night.
