MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Moh Habib has taken his love of sneakers to a whole new level. The owner of Studiiyo23 and organizer of this weekend's Twin Cities Sneaker Art Xchange owns around 300 pairs of sneakers.
A wide array of sneakers will be on display this weekend at First Avenue, along with the talent from several local artists and musicians. He says the event is an extension of what he does day in and day out in his store. "It's really a space where art converges under one roof," Habib says.
The Twin Cities Sneaker Art Xchange is Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at First Avenue. Admission is $12 and open to people of all ages. Tickets can be purchased at the door or also ahead of time at Studiiyo23, Electric Fetus, Fifth Element and First-Avenue.com.
