With over 60 artists on view, Hieronymus and Superchief Gallery filled Pish Posh with art that traverses everything from surrealism to pop. Artists include Aaron Johnson, Bonethrower, Ekundayo, Hoxxoh, Lauren YS, Mark Dean Veca, Parker Day, Sarah Sitkin, Swoon, Trenton Doyle Hancock, and many more contemporary artists.

Miami muralist Douglas Hoekzema aka Hoxxoh created a site-specific installation that reminisces the nostalgia of running through a sprinkler as a kid. Hoxxoh created mixed media sculptures “Rain.Bird 1 & 2” to transform a typically lifeless office hallway into a canvas of  splatter using the primary color triad: red, yellow, and blue.
