Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Art can be rad in all kinds of media, in all sorts of sizes. But Minikin Madness -- Rad Art on Small Surfaces will showcase only the tiniest of artworks, all done on 3x3'' surfaces.

"The idea is that you may be a fine artist, you may be a great artist, but once you have to go smaller with the surfaces, then the actual paintings or renderings or whatever media you're using become a lot harder," says Ian Robert McKown, who came up with the idea for the show that opens at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 31 and runs through September 2 at Boxcar Gallery. Minikin Madness will feature more than 150 pieces from artists around the world; keep reading to see some of the works that will be featured.
