Art Rock at Armory Art Center Was a Room of Awesome

New Times Broward-Palm Beach Calendar Editor Mickie Centrone has the enviable job of knowing about every event that happens within the boundaries of the two counties, and then some. When she attends some of the finest events from a given week, we'll post the details of her travels here. On Saturday, she attended Art Rock at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach.

Art Rock transformed Armory Art Center into the art version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

this past Saturday. Artwork was on the walls, on tables, on people, and

in jars. It was in the form of jewelry, paintings, magnets, skateboards,

and cupcakes. Put on by Stitch Rock's Amanda

Linton, this event gave everybody the opportunity to strut out the door

with artwork in hand (for instance, postcards sold for $2). The solid turnout and

feedback "reassures that people want this and that makes me happy,"

Linton said after the event. But a subtler perk at Art Rock was found.
