Urban Nature: Art Exhibit Opening at Blackbird Bar this Saturday

Secession Art & Design is extending their walls and curating prowess to the stylishly rustic Blackbird Bar in the Castro. Eden Stein, owner and curator of Secession, is proud to collaborate with Rob Sakovich in his first solo show featuring his largest collection of fine urban art on Saturday, December 8, 6-8pm.

As an old school graffiti artist, Sakovich has spent the past 25 years creating graffiti murals around San Francisco. Instead of discarding his used cans once his art was complete, he envisioned the reuse of his artistic tool. Years later, and with more than enough spray cans in his possession, Sakovich embarked on a new visionary journey, using his cans as his canvas. His beautiful 3-D scenes of the City and nature depict such landmarks as the Golden Gate Bridge and golden ginko leaves in the fall.

Please come and join us for Blackbird’s fine libations, a chance to meet Rob Sakovich, and to view his art, all of which will be for sale.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
