The people of Rochester have spoken, and they've voted WELCOME TO SWEETSVILLE one of the top four art exhibits for 2011! It's a ridiculous honor when you see who we were up against!

And one of our own, Sarah C. Rutherford, made it into the BEST LOCAL ARTIST category yet again! She's been on a tear ever since she got to Rochester, it's time for her to get her due!

Please take a few moments and vote for Sweat Meat Co and Sarah Rutherford in CITY paper's BEST OF 2011 Ballot!

(Here's our vote!)

Thank you everyone for your support! If you want to see what all the hub-bub is about, check out some pics from the installation!

We want to give a huge thanks to Jenn, Hannah, Angie, Justyn, Steve, Mary, Jordan, Jenna, Austin, Felix, and everyone else who helped us make Friday night such a great event. Hopefully we didn't miss your name!

A quest for boxes.

A few shots from our quest for boxes/materials this past monday.  A big thank you to Brandon Colaprete  who led the way to this box gold mine!  We are still in need of materials (boxes, windows, plywood, cool old treasures, rusty objects, etc) so give us a holler if you have a stash that you'd like to donate in the name of art!
