We love the vibrant community of wheatpaste artists that meet, exchange ideas, and leave behind tokens of their amazing art here at Tattooed Mom. Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue celebrates that community and reaches out to artists all over the world to show their best paste up art in our first ever wheatpaste show.

All work must not exceed 36″ x 48″ but work of any size less than the maximum dimensions are welcome.

• Work made of multiple smaller sheets must be pre-assembled into a whole single piece (larger pieces can be folded or rolled for transit).

• We’d like to be able to display ALL the work submitted so please limit your submission to a maximum of 5 of your very best pieces.

Please include an artist credit ( @ instagram handle or artist name ) with your work. The credit does not need to appear directly on the work but should be included with the submission package unless you want to submit and show your work anonymously.

The wheatpastes will be displayed in a show at Tattooed Mom on Friday June 14th from 5pm – 2am.  All wheatpastes will be collaged onto the walls of the 2nd floor of Tattooed Mom by a crew of local paste up artists. The more submissions, the more the walls get pasted. Stay tuned for more show details and rad surprises.


We hope you will share your wheatpaste art with us and the world through Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue, and spread the word about this show to your fellow artists, friends, and family. The creative exchange and collaboration of this show is at the very heart of what we love to do most here at Mom’s.

A Note About Accessibility at Tattooed Mom:

Due to the construction of our historical building, Tattooed Mom is only partially accessible. Our entrance way consists of one door forward followed by an immediate door to the right, leading into our downstairs bar. There’s (1) medium-sized step up through the first door. For folks using wheelchairs and mobility aids, we have a ramp we can lay down to help you access all parts of our first floor. Additionally, when weather permits during the warmer months, our front windows turn into an accordion door which has a larger step up but is a wider entrance point.

Our event space is on the second floor, which is only accessible via a flight of stairs (20 steps, 3 feet wide, railing on the left side only). The stairs lead into our upstairs front room, where art shows are held. Our main event space is located at the back of the second floor. There are (3) steps down to the middle room that holds our upstairs bar (metal railing available), and (2) additional steps up (no railing) leading to the upstairs back room through a doorway.

There are two all gender bathrooms on the first floor, one with a toilet and urinal, and one with only a toilet. The further bathroom is slightly larger, and both bathrooms are accessible via (1) step up midway through the dining room. For folks using wheelchairs and mobility aids, our front door ramp can also be used to access the back of our dining room/first floor bathrooms. There are two bathrooms in the upstairs back room, one with a toilet and urinal, and one with two stalls with a toilet in each. When facing the upstairs bathrooms, the bathroom to the right (with the toilet and urinal) is larger and more accessible.

If you have any questions regarding accessibility at Tattooed Mom, please reach out to our Experience Curator, Sarah, who is also a mobility aid user. You may reach them via email at [email protected].
