Put together by Bundit Kanisthakhon and Kirk Malanchuk, the installation has a recycling theme, as it's made up of plastic bottles, caps, aluminum cans, glass bottles, and other everyday-use containers.
At the always lively Ong King Art Center (184 N. King St., 306-7823), it'll be a joint exhibition by Joseph Carlisi and E.J. Heroldt.
Debuting at this month's First Friday downtown gallery walk is "Cap-a-City" at the Tadpole Studio, 1160 Smith Street (tadpolestudio.org).
Place: Downtown/ Chinatown district
Time: 5 to 9 p.m. Friday
Carlisi, a New York-born painter, places photorealistic figures in vibrantly colored tableaux. Heroldt, hailing from the avant-garde Berlin art scene, produces abstract compositions.
Live roosters will also be part of taro farmer Jason's original art installation.
There will also be an afterparty at the center, starting at 9, with live music from ukulele player Taimane Gardner in collaboration with Quadrophonix, MC Joel Spiral's band The Dinner, and other sundry dancers and musicians.
