The exhibition features the original work of fifty different artists presented on one inch buttons. These one inch buttons are displayed on the wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in mixed bags of five for $5. If the bag purchased does not have the desired button, trade with the people around you. How badly do you want that button?! That's when the "hot action" starts. The evening becomes an interactive party as people barter and trade for the buttons they really want!!
