ART 94124 EVENT
Live Mural Painting on Fairfax this Friday!
This Friday ART 94124 is hosting a fun event that will feature live mural painting. In the spirit of building community through ART, ART 94124 is excited to sponsor a new mural on Fairfax Street at Third St, adjacent to ART 94124 GALLERY, in partnership with La Laguna Taqueria. The mural will be painted by On Point artists Marlon Sagana Ingram, Jose Aponte, and other guest artists.
Join us this Friday for the kick-off of the mural's creation. Sip on some hot cider, gather 'round the grill to toast up a marshmallow (or 4), while enjoying some drumming by local musician Larry Williams and watching local artists work on creating the first mural on Fairfax! Also, take a a peek in the gallery at the current exhibit On Point: Art + Graffiti, an original exhibit of art, graffiti, and installation work by eight artists from Bayview and Hunters Point, that includes work by the muralists.
About On Point: Art + Graffiti
Inspired by the aesthetic of "street art," the exhibit features works by Bayview resident Marlon Sagana Ingram with a number of young artists that attended an art workshop that Marlon taught at 3rd Street Youth Center's Art Drop at 3rd and Thornton from 2006–2009: Jose Aponte; Amsi Ruiz; Adele Shiek; Christopher Su; Francesca Marquez; FNGRS; and Jasper Bailey. Marlon recently moved back to the Bayview, while the other young artists currently live and/or create art in Hunters Point. They all continue to draw inspiration from the neighborhood for their artistic endeavors.
Meet the young artists, see their creations, and support the artistic efforts of youth from the neighborhood at Friday's live mural painting event.
