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.
Juxtapoz is proud to both kick off the 2015 year with a cover story on Brooklyn-based fine artist Dan Witz in our print edition. But we are even more proud that it will be released at our booth at Scope Art Fair Miami Beach and on shelves around the world during the holiday shopping rush. Witz is overdue for the cover, with his mosh pit paintings and unique street art being enjoyed by collectors and readers for over two decades.
