Investing in gold and art is for everyone. Join Busy Beaver Button Company to celebrate the Grand Opening of its new headquarters with a new Button-O-matic series featuring the first-ever 24-karat gold buttons on August 8, 2009 in Chicago.
Series Ten curator Dustin Hostetler aka Upso from Threadless Select and Faesthetic Magazine used the theme “Currency” to organize artists like once-Gama Go contributor and pop painter Tim Biskup, Part & Parcel designer Damien Correll, Print Magazine’s 20 Under 30 New Visual Artists Jennifer Daniel, Fudge Factory Comics’ Travis Millard, 80s and 90s nostalgic designer Spacesick, psychedelic illustrator Ginette Lapalme, STEAK MTN designer Christopher Norris, the fantastical Luke Ramsey, technical artist Geoffery Todd Smith, and Brooklyn-based poster man Nicholas Gazin.
