The Hot Tub Dialogues at Subterranean Gallery

with the help of 58 kickstarter backers, Ayla Rexroth and Clayton Skidmore raised $2773.00 to cover the installation of a hot tub in their basement apartment, which doubles as an art gallery. The Jacuzzi, which was donated by an exhibiting artists parents, served as a wet, hot podium for a series of three discussions that included regional curators, artists, and an architect.  An audience of 30 squeezed into tiny plastic folding chairs to eavesdrop on a brilliant mix of high- and lowbrow art talk.  The Hot Tub Dialogues encouraged speakers to reveal a little more (skin and theory) than usual, when discussing art, life and their careers.  File under Best Talent Pool.
