Welcome to The Whimsy World

Take your paparazzi to The Beyonce Bathroom inside new immersive art exhibit The Whimsy World.


The Whimsy World (Feb 12-28)
District Art Gallery
810 Richey St.
You still remember your stomach dropping when you read about Instagram's new algorithm. 
Get every eyeball on your post when you snap a pic from The Whimsy World, opening Tuesday. Big-deal local pop artist Shelbi Nicole, whose work reminds us of a trippy biology lesson, has transformed a downtown gallery into a multi-room fantastical wonderland, complete with clouds that rain crystals, Boomerang-ready Valentine confetti, Tim Burton-esque fields of flowers, a massive pink piggy bank, a wall of traffic cones, paint-dipped Hawaiian leis and tons more art you can touch. But, by far our fave, is The Beyoncé Bathroom, plastered with black-and-white pics of our hometown girl and mirrors that say "I woke up like this" and "Drunk in love." No shoving, please, to snap a selfie with your queen bee. (Watch this video clip to see inside.)
And give the new feed the middle filter.
