A Sculptural Installation
Jan 12 -Feb 9
Reception: Jan 12th 5-7PM at 447 O'Farrell Street
BEER provided by Fort Point
(secret whiskey provided by Jonn)
In our ongoing interest of merging art and the every day, we asked Bay Area visual artist Cybele Lyle to create a sculptural installation within our office and storefront. In keeping with her recent work, Cybele has precariously wedged and braced a group of painted 2x4 wooden planks throughout our space, creating an installation that we literally have to walk through. This makes our usual mundane journey of retrieving something from the printer into a walk of excitement and (in some cases) slight risk.
If you are in the SF Bay Area and free this Thursday, come out and join us for a post-work beer and a walk through Cybele's work.
