The Camera Store is a proud sponsor of Beakerhead which is a Smash up of Art Science & Engineering. There is a ton of cool things to photograph or film around the city. It is a spectacle of unusual proportion, with mechanical sculptures, interactive street art, feats of creativity and engineering, larger-than-life theatre and spectacular performances. It takes place indoors and outdoors, and involves venues and public spaces throughout the city. Most events are free. Explore with abandon! Mark it on your calendars for Sept. 14-18.
