The Mini Show in Los Angeles provided visitors with an extremely unique vantage point -- that of a giant. The entire exhibition was premised upon experiencing miniature works of art, in what essentially became a shrunken gallery.

The Mini Show was built and curated by artist Clare Crespo and wanted guests to focus on the tiny detail that these artist put in their work. Visitors were even given magnifying glasses upon arrival to allow them to better inspect the minuscule art. Many of the artists featured shrunk down recognizable pieces of their own art to fit with the show's unique premise. Showcasing art in this way made the intricacies of each artist and their work even more apparent, forcing visitors to appreciate each small detail.
