At CO Exhibitions' latest show, "Cinco de Mayhem," revelers will be invited to beat and tear the artwork to pieces. For the past couple of months, local artists have been designing, stuffing, and decorating papier-mâché creatures, all of which will be destroyed this Saturday. Here, dozens of piñatas will hang from the ceiling of the space so folks can appreciate the work and creativity that went into their construction. The real fun, however, will begin when guests takes turns swatting at each piece in hopes of breaking their bodies and spilling their candy- and treat-filled contents on the floor. DJ Prince Klassen will be spinning the soundtrack to the evening, while Yatta! will be documenting the destruction. (Pictured: Work from Hannah Haugberg)
