The premise of Frankenart Mart: hot dogs + interactive art (though not necessarily at the same time) + curiosity and creativity in a very small space — a 200-square-foot storefront in the Inner Richmond, to be precise. It's a "for-prophet business that does not make a profit." Frankenart's ongoing, rotating art projects are theme-based and rely on public participation; all you need is a willingness to, for example, play dead for a little while, or engage in outdoor sports indoors. Oh, and on one Sunday each month, Frankenart gives out free hot dogs (both beef and veggie are available) to anyone who drops by. Just because. Drop by to engage in the current art theme, then replenish your energy with a dog or two.
