TWOKAT Puts Local Art in Orbit
AstroPop takes off at The Chamber this Saturday
We’ve barely dipped our toes into autumn and an incredibly colorful and diverse array of creative events are falling into place all around us. Some are organized by local nonprofits, others by artist collectives and large cultural entities and galleries.
And some are passion projects, organized by artists for artists … wherever they can find space to do it.
AstroPop, which takes place this Saturday, Sept. 25, is one of those — envisioned and cultivated by local creative Brett Toukatly (a.k.a. TWOKAT) with help from his employer, The Chamber by Wooden Robot in the NoDa neighborhood.
