Tomorrow, Ottawa residents should consider checking out the Chinatown remixed art event, on Somerset. It will feature the work of fifty artists in a number of unconventional venues. According to the organizers, it is partially inspired by the Nuit Blanche community art events in Montreal and Toronto.

The event runs from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Participating venues include the Mekong Restaurant, Raw Sugar, the Shanghai Restaurant, the So Good Restaurant, and the Umi Cafe. Basically, just head to that section of Somerset and you should be able to see what’s going on.

How was the art?

I enjoyed the art I saw, plus the whole community spirit of the event. I especially like some of the portrait photography on display in some windows on the north side of Somerset, somewhere around Shanghai restaurant.
