Jacob A Pfeiffer @ John Pence Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
We have a few bits of information about Jacob A Pfeiffer that you should know. First,  Jacob won a Milwaukee, WI skateboard contest "best trick" award in 1989 by ending his run with a magic trick. That is pretty good. Second, his father is the artist/teacher/activist who organized the Clay Stomp, an American-Soviet mural project. That is really good. And thirdly, Jacob is part of a great group show opening this Friday April 19th @ John Pence Gallery in San Francisco that you truly must see to believe.
