Wednesday's Sacramento leg of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour brought out some of the largest crowds we've seen yet. The cops made a special appearance at the day event held at FTC, thankfully leaving without incident. I hope they at least enjoyed the art while they were there! The evening event at R15 featured some rad giveaways including the grand prize - a Bianchi Pista fixed gear. From the California's Capitol it's on to the Bay Area Friday, September 14th for the opening celebration of Upper Playground's newest location in Berkeley (2509 Telegraph Avenue) and then an evening event at Radio in Oakland. Saturday's daytime event in San Francisco will be held at the Upper Playground on Fillmore St. at 3pm. For the evening, the art tour will be held at 111 Minna as part of Juxtapoz' Get Exposed event and will start at 10pm.
Sometimes you just walk right into a gallery and know you have something moving on your hands. That is what we felt like with Jenny Morgan. Her work is stunning, well-executed, alluring... and we have her on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Juxtapoz. We go to Jenny's Brooklyn studio to watch the development of her new body of work.
