GET DOWN OC

GD June21 Final web

One of our favorite party nights, GET DOWN OC!, has made a triumphant return after a year long hiatus. This week (TONIGHT in fact) is the 2nd installment of the re-energized party night, and we’re so excited! 

From 2010-2011 GET DOWN OC was one of the premier party nights in Downtown Santa Ana, rivaling the might and prowess of the Crosby (one of SoCal’s most known club nights). When it got shut down last fall, it was a terrible blow to all of us who looked forward to getting faced on thursday nights. Not to mention, the lineups & special guests always crushed – to say the least it was a crushing blow to social events in the OC area. 

This week features a stellar local DJ lineup, but the party maestro, Mikey Jazzwell, has so many epic guests up his sleeve that this new iteration of GET DOWN OC will certainly be the most epic to date. 

We’ve also been blessed with the opportunity to Art Direct for GET DOWN OC. From flyers, to the website & branding, we will be crafting a visual identity to match the meditation like stillness, amidst a sweaty mess, that is GET DOWN OC. 

So grab your dancing shoes, and come join us! Every Thursday night from 9-2! And trust us when we say that this is NOT a party to be missed. 

Silverton – POW Wedding

What’s been happening during our hiatus? We’ll have to see if Daniel the Giant decides to share his adventures following his return… For now we’d like to share with you a little trip we took to Silverton, Colorado. We’ve been to all kinds of mountains and resorts, but Silverton is unique. The mountain is guided only during most of the year, and offers visitors endless pow runs and pillow lines. This is a TRUE mountain experience. Much thanks goes out to our friends Erin and Alex, who staged a wedding in order to give us all an excuse to escape!

CicLaVia October Event

They’ve finally released the route for the next massive CicLaVia, and boy does it look exciting. The last CicLaVia earlier this year, in April, was a really great experience. Seeing hundreds of people out on the streets, riding bikes, skateboarding, roller skating, etc… all on massive Los Angeles streets, was very inspiring. It was almost like a glimpse into the future past of our culture.

I’m immensely excited to take part of the next CicLaVia, and you should be too. Even if you’re not a bike nut, come on down, roll over, walk over. The experience of everyone moving together, laughing, playing together – the humanity of it all. It’s an overwhelming and awesome experience.

Come this October, you’ll find the Humble Giants out enjoying and documenting CicLaVia. Come have some fun with us.

The crew over at Inflate have been producing some amazing pop-up structures. They come in tons of sizes, formats and applications, but the massive inflatable structures are by far the coolest of them all. The opportunities these present are literally endless — creating an “inside” space anywhere/anytime affords so many opportunities to bring people together.

Event: Chain Letter

Chain Letter
July 23 – August 25, 2011
Opening: Saturday, July 23 / 6-8 pm

Chain Letter is a group exhibition based on admiration. Initially conceived by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey in 2006, inclusion in the exhibition is based on invitation by someone who admires your work. Each artist invited then invites ten other artists whom they admire, and so on. This email invite will circulate for thirty days, at the end of which each artist will install their own work on the floor at Shoshana Wayne Gallery.

This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the social nature of the art world. It is the hope of the curators that the response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and admired by their peers.
