Recently I was asked to participate in an art walk put on by Urban Solutions SF, a non-profit organization here in San Francisco. The art walk, called “2 Blocks of Art”, is just that…2 blocks (from Market to Howard) of artwork displayed inside the many businesses and restaurants in this up and coming area of the Civic Center/Tenderloin. Each location along the 2 block area featured a different artist (or group of artists) exhibiting their work and chatting it up with the general public…it was a great night filled with plenty of interesting people!
I showed my work in Pranzo Pizza, located at 32 6th Street. Pranzo had a big flatscreen tv in there (I watched several sitcoms while setting up that afternoon), and they also have BRIGHT YELLOW WALLS. This worked out for me since I did black and white works for the show…I think the combination of the black n’ white against the yellow is pretty sweet looking! The guys working at Pranzo were super cool and even helped me move their big mirror off the wall so I could hang my paintings.
I want to thank all the cool folks who took the time to talk with me about my work, and also a big thanks to all who purchased a piece that night! Also thanks to Kirsten at Urban Solutions for contacting me and getting me on board for this event…I hope to be involved next year.
Here are some pics of my wall at Pranzo:
