Open Color is a new San Francisco-based art collective aimed at bridging the gap between the ever-growing tech companies that are eating their way through Silicon Valley and beyond, and the once-flourishing art scene that is choking financially in the current climate.
Kate Zaliznock has crafted the collective in the hopes that their events can create a space that lets established members of the arts community, underground creatives, and tech purveyors, all meet and connect on a new level. Their overall goal is to provide a space for people who are interested in conserving their art scene with the new tech crowd, and organically finding a place to coincide and thrive together equally.
Their first event will be centering around Karen O's resident costume designer Christian Joy, who is a renowned designer that has been featured on Vogue Italia, Billboard, Ozy and Time Out Magazine, and her exhibitions have been featured at Space 15 Twenty (Los Angeles), Diesel Art Gallery (Tokyo), Secret Project Robot (New York) among others.
On Saturday, November 12th, Heron Arts will be hosting from 6-10pm a showcase of her incredible Bok Choy series. More information about the series can be found here.
