Kick off your (wearable) art collection this Saturday with the launch of local hatmaker Goorin Bros. Spring '10 1333 Minna Artist Series Line.
An ongoing collaboration between the iconic hat company and Mission-based art studio, this season you can expect to find original designs on toppers of all shapes and sizes from up-and-coming artists including Reyes, Steel, Retna, Lango and Michael Ryan at Goorin Bros.' three SF shops as well as online.
Fittingly, they're throwing not one but two parties to celebrate the release. Start things off from 4-9 p.m. at Goorin's Haight St. shop, where they'll be free booze and beats along with a limited edition hand-printed poster signing by the artists and special giveaways when you buy a hat from the collection. Then skip over to 1333 Minna Studios for a gallery reception from 9 p.m.-late.
In short, this is one...errr...two events that you shouldn't miss if you like amazing art, hats and free stuff. And really, who doesn't?
Goorin Bros., 1446 Haight St., at Ashbury St. (415-436-9450); 1333 Minna Studios, 1333 Minna St., b/t 14th and 15th Sts.
