But Is It Art: Twitterloin’s “NEMA” Building to Unveil Snapchat-Centric “WALL OF GOOD LOOKS” at 10th and Market – FREE DONUTS!Friday, August 19th, 2016
(From the people who brought us “AMENITIES, NOT ENEMIES.” Ah, mem’ries.)
“We’re thrilled to announce the unveiling of the “Wall of Good Looks”, an interactive public art installation showcased along NEMA’s Market Street windows. Grab your smart phones and a few friends to join us for some photo fun! To kick off the event at 8 10th Street, FREE DONUTS will be given to all who join us on Sunday, August 21st from 4-6pm! In celebration of the Wall of Good Looks debut, NEMA will also be releasing a five day sequence of custom-designed Snapchat filters starting this Sunday, 8/21, through Thursday, 8/25, from 4-6 p.m. Those who enter the specified geo-perimeter will be able to take Snapchat selfies to share with friends during this limited time.”
I’ll just note that the word “art” and its derivatives was used 11 times in this announcement.
I’ll also note that the people who work at/for the NEMA building seem to have a lot of time to spend on Yelp…
When Visiting Chinatown, Be Sure To Take a Selfie with a Banksy – “Peaceful Hearts Doctor” at 799 Commercial Near GrantWednesday, June 25th, 2014
[UPDATE: It’s gone now, all gone – here’s a more recent photo:
This is why we can’t have nice things.]
Thusly. Strike a pose, mate:
Click to expand, Gov’ner. Right!
Of course this shot was from back in the day, from back before the Black Paint Attack of 2013, which damaged the appearance of the famously peaceful heart doctor.
But a genuine 2010 Banksy is a genuine 2010 Banksy, right? So check it out the next time you’re on Eddy Grant Avenue – it’s electric!
Sure you can!
Heh: Asian Art Museum “Loses” Terracotta Warrior – “2,112 Years Old, About 5’ 5” Tall, Mud-Colored, and Doesn’t Speak English”Thursday, January 24th, 2013
“The Asian Art Museum needs your help. One of our terracotta warriors is lost, and we have to find him before China’s Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor’s Legacy opens on February 22. What we know is this: a small group of terracotta warriors journeyed from their home in China to the museum—but somewhere along the way, this one took a wrong turn and is now missing. He’s 2,112 years old, about 5’ 5” tall, mud-colored, and doesn’t speak English.”
Ashton Kutcher and that Horrible San Francisco-Based PopChips Company Make the 2012 Fineman PR Blunder ListMonday, December 17th, 2012
And there’s a little background on this after the jump.
Ashton, you’re not funny – try something else.
Ashton, your entourage (and also all the Pop Chips people) were afraid to tell you that your skits were not even remotely entertaining. What else didn’t they / don’t they tell you?
Oh, and the reviews are in:
First up is the origami paper-crane pop-up graffiti bombing of the McAllister wall.
Here’s how it’s holding up, last night…
…and the day before:
It’s persevering, huh?
Next up is the closing of the Big Show, check it:
CLOSING THIS SUNDAY
Just as this exhibition has touched upon the fleeting nature of life, it too must come to an end. An expansive exploration of spirituality, cosmic order, and the afterlife, it’s a provocative presentation of both contemporary art and older objects from our collection. The result is a one-of-a-kind journey transcending time and place. Phantoms will go out with a bang: everyone can see it for FREE this Sunday, as part of our Target First Free Sunday.”
I’d recommend showing up early or late on Sept 2, 2012. Feel free to practice your Gangnam Style while waiting in line. Speaking of which, don’t forget about:
Sunday, September 23
11 am–4 pm
All the deets on that after the jump.
