That’s right I said PINATA!! Little Things is very very excited to start May with a fun festive First Thursday with Alaina and her creatively awesome PINATAS!! We’re talking Diamonds, Oregon State Shapes, CORN DOGS, and MORE!!
Pacific North West native Alaina Mickes works predominately in papier mâché, mixing paper, flour and water to create wearable fine art, unique piñatas and other colorful décor. The majority of her work is inspired by the Day of the Dead, a predominately Latin holiday that raucously celebrates (rather than mourns) the lives of the deceased. For Alaina, papier mâché best represents the transitory nature of life and challenges her to transform these simple elements into a complex work of art.
Along with our Pinata Party our ActivSpace neighbors are staying open late too!! Check out what they are up to…
