Hot One Inch Action

"On November 9, 2013 from 8-11pm at Hot Art Wet City (2206 Main, Vancouver) we’re celebrating our tenth anniversary show in Vancouver! Come down, check out the art and buy & trade buttons!

Conceived by Jim Hoehnle and Chris Bentzen in 2004, Hot One Inch Action is the original, one-night only show of button art and social interaction from Vancouver, BC. The art of fifty different artists is reproduced on one inch buttons. These limited edition buttons are displayed on the gallery wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in mixed bags of five for $5. Didn’t get the button you want? Trade with the people around you… how bad do you want that button?! That’s when the hot action starts."
