What happens when you tell more than seventy artists from around the world to help a bunch of bears evolve and take on humanity? The Humans Beware I.W.G. Custom Show will provide the answer. Featuring seventy urban artists from a variety of backgrounds and locations around planet Earth, the I.W.G. blanks will be "evolved" from different visions of the artists. With such a huge amount of talent involved (70+ artists!), this show is one you shouldn't miss!!!

After the show, the pieces will be available online for viewing and for sale (special thanks to Big Cartel for sponsoring the store). There are also plans to do a live streaming webcam broadcast that will keep you up to date--check it out at http://blue77gallery.com/shows/iwg/ Another reason not to miss Humans Beware I.W.G. Custom Show in person, is that you'll be there for the first ever show based around customized I.W.G. toys and it'll all happen in one of the best venues there is: Rocketworld, a truly amazing gallery and store. Don't miss this show!
