On Wednesday, March 5th, artists, musicians, sneakerheads, and the young & creative descended upon Studiiyo 23 for the Art+Music+Sport event featuring the artwork of our good friends and family, Taylor Lindgren (http://www.etsy.com/shop/taylorlindgrenart) and Ryan Fors (http://www.ryanfors.com/).
A laid-back and friendly vibe was in the air as new artwork encompassing a wide variety of cultures from Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Kanye West to Sesame Street characters such as Elmo and Big Bird from both Taylor and Ryan was displayed all over the store. Guests were also treated to a DJ set from Minneapolis’s own Sophia Eris (https://twitter.com/SophiaEris), who spun everything from Kanye West to Ice Cube. Those in attendance also enjoyed great deals on fresh pairs of kicks as well as new gear.
As usual, we had a diverse crowd was in attendance. Local artists such as Lizzo (https://twitter.com/lizzo) and St. Paul’s own Allan Kingdom (https://twitter.com/ALLANKNGDM), who were both recently announced as a performers at this year’s at the annual Soundset festival (http://www.soundsetfestival.com/) , made appearances and took in the artwork and sneakers while catching up with familiar faces such as DJ Adora Tokyo (https://twitter.com/AdoraTokyo)
Later on in the evening, guests were treated to a performance from Studiiyo23’s own Sean Crawford and his friends and fellow artists Mickey and Phil who ran through some of their new music, capping things off with a freestyle session where creative rhymes were traded back and forth.
Laughter was prominent, music, art, sneakers, and fashion were discussed, and connections were made. All in attendance had an excellent time and another gathering of creative individuals was in the books. So stay tuned to this site or any one of our social media platforms (@Studiiyo23) to keep up to date on all our instore events as well as regular reggae and hip-hop shows we host around town.
