How do you make graffiti a collectible art form? By using magnets. They allow the Magnet Mafia to deftly straddle the street and gallery worlds, keeping the public-art aspect of tagging while creating something fans can collect.
Tonight at the Fabric Lab, 3105 East Colfax Avenue, the Mafia hosts Magnet Making With the Mafiosos, where partyers can make their own fridge tags. Also revealed will be limited-edition magnets by both local and national artists. Afterward, the Lab will show off local designers' fall lines on a catwalk stretching down Colfax, Japanimplosion will host live screen-printing, and DJ Klaw will spin.
Magnet making takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. and costs $10, which includes supplies; the rest of the night is free. For more information, call 303-321-3604 or visit www.myspace.com/magnet_mafiosos.
