Street Art Goes Legit During FREE Friday Night SoirÃ©e at the DeYoung
Imagine for a moment a world where Street Art is prominently displayed on the walls of a well-respected art museum. Imagine a world where trash is turned into something other than a big pile around the trash can because the trash can is full. A world where every cold, irony-shriveled heart North of Caesar Chavez actually attends and enjoys a city-sanctioned event without (too much) complaining.
No, it’s not some sci-fi nightmare movie, it’s this week’s edition of the de Young Museum‘s free Friday Night SoirÃ©es and it involves a lot Mission artists whose work you’ve probably seen painted along the alleyways of the 94110. The works will be projected onto the walls of the museum, while live music and DJ sets will set the mood from 5pm until 9-ish so you can really get that, “I’m drunk and walking through the Mission” experience while you take in the artwork.
Oh and the best part? Artist-in-Residence Jeanine Briggs will be building the Detritussaurus – a full-scale dinosaur made entirely from trash recycled materials. (Full scale? Seriously? What kind of dinosaur are we talking about here? I hope it’s Diplodocus because that guy was huge.)
