Minut init invites any artist, This is the suprise part where minut init while aproach any artists who is interest to exhibit their works, Open to anybody who is really interested in exhibit their artworks and have the eye of art,
Bassically Minut init starts with as a stepping stone for new artist, and Minut Init will always changing ideas and keep evolving,
