BSLUG Tour of Shepard Fairey Exhibit a Great Time

Ok, so perhaps our elderly docent didn't know much about guerrilla street art--maybe, she learned more from us than we did from her, but the BSLUG visit to the Shepard Fairey exhibit (Feb. 7, 2009) was still a lot of fun. The ICA space was very conducive to having a big group of excited people, sharing their knowledge and experiences. The consensus was that Shepard Fairey's art is very cool and much of it beautiful. Here are some of the comments from our group:

  • "We had a fabulous time. It was wonderful to meet everyone and reconnect with a taste of Santa Cruz. "

  • "This was my first outing with the group, and I'm already looking forward to the next one!"

  • "Many of you had insights into how to look at or “see” the art, and it added greatly to the experience. Thank you all for what you brought. I’d love to go see some more art with you in the future."
After the exhibit, eleven of us had lunch together at a nearby restaurant, capping off a great day.
