HOT ONE INCH ACTION
The party hadn't stop since its grand opening from my last blog post; Sit. Interiors continued connecting YYC with events that stimulated everyone's mind.
Founders: Chris Bentzen and Jim Hoehnle
Hot One Inch Action is an annual one night social interaction event started 9 years ago by two Vancouverians Chris Bentzen and Jim Hoehnle. 50 best graphic/illustration designs submitted by independent artists were selected to be on the face of a one inch pin. With $5, you can purchase a pack of 5 random pins. Here's where the "social interaction" part comes in :) If you have a pin design you like, but not in the pack you purchased, you are encouraged to trade for your favourite pins with other people!
Started in Vancouver, the Hot One Inch Action became quite a popular and well received concept that it spread to other North American cities including Seattle, Portland, New York and San Francisco. It certainly is a pleasure to have this event come to Calgary and allowed our fellow representative artists to design one-of-a-kind pins.
The event attracted people of all ages, certainly an alternative activity for family night. At the event, some serious pin collectors even brought their own vintage pins to trade. Here are some more photos of the night and artists of their corresponding pin designs.
Binzento got his two most favourite pins!
