It is a great corner site, an exciting but exhausting gig painting in the micro climates of the scaffolding. Hot on one side and cold on the other. Sweet and sinister, everyday living mixed with screeches of pain. My favorite compliment this week: ”The Hummingbird is a motherfucking powerful bird.”
~Excerpt from Johanna Poethig’s Blog
Bay Area visual, public, and performance artist, Johanna Poethig, created a blog to document the process of her latest mural project located in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco, CA. Muralism is a huge part of San Francisco’s culture and I’m ecstatic to see Poethig chronicling all of the unique stories that go along with the process. Enjoy!
The Transmutations exhibition, at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (GAFFTA), closing show completely reinvigorated the art writing. I will definitely post thoughts and reflections of the show in the next few days including thoughts on GAFFTA’s awesomeness. It was one of the best closing nights I’ve EVER attended. I’m extremely proud to be a volunteer for this organization!! More to come…
