Hot One Inch Action is the original, one-night only show of button art and social interaction from Vancouver, BC, with the tiny art of fifty different artists reproduced on one inch buttons. These limited edition buttons are displayed on the gallery wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in mixed bags of five for $5. Didn’t get the button you want? Trade with the people around you… how bad do you want that button?! That’s when the hot action starts.

Hot One Inch Action last night


Last night’s Hot One Inch Action show at the HAWC Gallery was crazy. People were arriving before it started (it was rainy so we let them in) and by 8:30 the place was packed. We had a line-up outside for a while but luckily food truck JJ’s Trucketeria was on hand to keep everyone happy. Looking forward to the US shows and next year’s 10th anniversary in Vancouver!
