A walk through 'Parachute Factory'

There was a lot of talk surrounding Parachute Factory, the one-night-only exhibition that took place on two floors in an empty building in Downtown last Saturday. During a preview walk-through of the space, I saw the beginnings of what was to be an ambitious show. 

Parachute Factory didn't disappoint, with room after room of interesting, large-scale pieces and murals and small crevices filled with high-concept video art. There was even an entire room dedicated to Michael Jordan's birthday.

If you missed it, check out some images from the show. Or, if you'd like to see it in person, Parachute Factory will be opening again from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4. Just RSVP to info@yellerstudio.com with your name, number of guests and which day and time you'd like to wander the exhibition. Unfortunately, some of the artists have already taken down their installations, but what's still up is definitely worth checking out.
