Ty Ziskis from CMRTYZ dropped off a stack of their Psychedelic Summer zines at the shop. These were compiled of the art of John Malta, Cassie Ramone, C.M. Ruiz, and Matthew Volz to accompany CMRTYZ's Psychedelic Summer installation/exhibition at Rare Gallery in New York. The exhibition ran until July 24th and featured art work by the four previously mentioned artists, as well as a pop-up shop with music, t-shirts, and more. Click here [or scroll down to the video below] to see a rundown of what the installation entailed.
