It’s a well-known truth that people always want to be what they are not. This seems especially true when it comes to hair color (if only I could pull off red!) and occupation (oh, to be an astronaut). I’ve noticed recently that every artist I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with insists their art is closer to another genre than what it seems, in a “yes, I make wood carvings, but I consider them to be paintings” kind of way.
On Saturday, June 16 Scion and the Flavor Group presented the Exprescion SF event on Alcatraz where the art, music, fashion and performance world joined together with live music by the Cool Kids, performance burlesque by Vau De Vire Society a graffiti-inspired art show in the jail's old chapel and a fashion show.
