There are many types of artists in Rexburg. Local musicians receive support from venues such as The Basement and growing interest from students. Photographers dominate your Instagram feed. Visual artists design t-shirts and create murals. And many more.
This Friday, November 9, art collective WeakMindedMasses is hosting a free pop-up show to feature the artistic endeavor of Rexburg.
While a traditional art show is far removed from the budget of a typical college student, WeakMindedMasses’ Pop-Up Show aims to be more accessible. Admission is free, zines are $5, t-shirts are $15, and art caps at $30.
“We wanted to provide an affordable art show,” says one of the organizers and contributing artists, Joe Horner. “Something accessible where you can take something with you.”
The show is a positive opportunity for members of the community to interact with local artists and view their work. It also allows participating artists to receive peer review of their work outside of a classroom setting.
“We’re definitely trying to build a community,” says Horner. “This show gives artists the opportunity to network with other artists.”
“The art program [in Rexburg] needs to stand independently from the school,” adds fellow contributor and organizer Jacob Gooch.
The pop-up show begins at 7 p.m. and will take place at 10 College Ave, Apt A.
