C.A.K.E: The NYC Art Exhibit All About Chicks, Art, & Kicks

Chicks. Art. Kicks. What’s not to love?

House of Malcolm and Cozy Girl Squad teamed up for a dope event powered by women part of the sneaker culture and their unique perspective. With all the girl power going on, the Live Civil team made sure to be in attendance for this incredible extravaganza.

Often times when it comes to sneaker culture, women are left out of the conversation. As it was proudly put on display Saturday, April 29th in Brooklyn, NY, us ladies are just as invested as our male counterparts in the world of sneaker fashion. Don’t play yourself.

A fusion of art and fashion, C.A.K.E (Chicks. Art. Kicks. the Exhibition.) will showcase sneaker-themed art by all female artists.

The exhibit, who’s aesthetics equally matched their marketing campaign, was an afternoon full of girl power, dope art, good feets, an open bar, sneaker & merch giveaways and of course, #BlackGirlMagic.

Ashley Malcolm & Donette Lowe’s sold-out and first event collaboration welcomed sneakerheads and art lovers from all over New York City.  Although the focus of “C.A.K.E.” was around us girls, the guys were also in the building. Both women and men stopped by the 4-hour exhibit rocking their favorite kicks in return for great vibes.

 

The talented artists featured at ‘C.A.K.E.’ include Kali Kicks, O’Nysha Thomas, Jai Haley, Ebonii B., Tiffany Alfonseca, Shawnette, Hello Qori, Kiarra Elliott, Tracy Luckow, MyDarlingWendy, Arts by Amber, CCSTTEEZ, Jill Forie, Janel Young, Kitty Leigh, Dom Stanley, and Saint Cartoons.

All of the artwork showcased during the exhibit were centered around sneaker culture, like O’Nysha Thomas’ Nike Swoosh sculpture and Kali Kicks’ hand-designed pieces:

 

 

We hope there’s a part two of ‘C.A.K.E.’ some time in the near future! We’ll certainly be back.
