Game of Shrooms!!

Saturday, June 11, all day!

I’ll be hiding these art mushrooms around the East Bay throughout the day. Check my Instagram to get clues as to each mushroom’s location. Finders keepers. You get to keep the mushroom if you find it first. Then please tag me in a pic on your social media with a pic of your find. Hundreds of artists are participating so it should be a crazy fun day for foragers. Thanks to Attaboy for inventing organizing Game of Shrooms now in it’s 4th year!

SFMOMA Soapbox Derby

I had so much fun at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Soapbox Derby event at McLaren Park in San Francisco on Sunday, 4/10. Many (57) amazing derby cars made by local Bay Area artists competed for trophies made by local artists. Thanks to my awesome pit crew Mary Kalin-Casey, John C. Rogers, Stephanie Silk, Brett Durrett, and Tangee Boyce! And of course all the awesome SFMOMA folks and volunteers who made it all come together. Thanks to my friends who came out to show support as well. I was so surprised and happy to get the Fastest Car trophy made by the legendary Wanxin Zhang!!


Familiar Strangers @ WowXwoW

WOW x WOW is incredibly proud to present Familiar Strangers. Opening on wowxwow.com at 7pm GMT on 4th March and running until 25th March, the exhibition will feature over 90 incredible original artworks by more than 80 super talented international artists.

Many of the works of art we appreciate, admire and connect with in our lifetimes are created by people we don’t know, and will never know personally. Some may have been created hundreds of years ago by artists long since passed away. Others might have been created recently by contemporary artists living on the other side of the world, who we will never have any interaction with. However, despite not knowing these creators personally, we develop profound and lasting connections with their creations, falling in love with the imagination, vision and humanity within. The artworks provide us with wonderful insights into aspects of the creator’s being that resonate with our own, helping us form deeply meaningful relationships with these ‘Familiar Strangers’.
