Party Castle is a mall-themed art show, music show, and gallery experience that opened 10/15 and ran through 10/18 at Allmost Studios & Gallery in Los Angeles. It was set up in a mall-like fashion and followed that theme due to its vast possibilities of interpretation as well as its fun/chillness factor and vision to set up more welcoming and friendly art shows in LA. It also marked the genesis of Nastya Valentine Enterprises.
