The Teen Project in Venice

The Teen Project in Venice

Every year 25,000 teens leave the foster care system and end up homeless and on the streets. Thanks to the vision of founder Lauri Burns, The Teen Project is a service organization dedicated to reuniting teens with their families or finding them safe homes. The Teen Project P.A.D. opened its doors in Venice Beach in February after uniting eight interior designers and companies like CB2, Blu Dot, FLOR and Blik to turn the space into a resource center for homeless teens. They completed the redesign in only one month!

We were proud to work with Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise to add a little light to the space with Mina Javid’s Workshop Lights. More photos of The Teen Project are here.

HOLIDAY DONATION: MATTEL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL UCLA

HOLIDAY DONATION: MATTEL CHILDRENS HOSPITAL UCLA

Help us spread the love this holiday season! From November 26 until December 24, a percentage of all whatisblik.com sales will go to the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, which ranks among the world’s elite institutions for pediatric research, teaching and care. We are currently working with Mattel on a project for the hospital. We’ve been hired to art direct all aspects of the job as well as design, manufacture and install wall graphics at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Play project. We were so touched by the work Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA does for children that we wanted to give back – with your help, of course!

More about our work with Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA:

Housed within the I.M. Pei designed Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA was named with a generous gift from Mattel Children’s Foundation. The facility is beautifully designed with minimalist details and clean lines. The goal of the Hospital Play project is to infuse the space with…well, a sense of playfulness essential to development, learning, healing and growth. The project is starting with a pilot phase, focusing on the 5th floor and will expand next year. We are working with one of our collaborators, Patrick Hruby, to create a magical world for the kids complete with an enchanted forest, whimsical garden and an undersea adventure.

Update: Our installation happened in December. Here is a sneak peek with a few photos. More photos and a video to come!

January 2012 Update: Thanks to everyone who shopped with us from November 26 to December 24, a donation has been made to Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. We appreciate your holiday support!

Now, get shopping!

Lomography World Tour x Blik

The Lomography “Diana World Tour” has been traveling all over the globe hosting the world-famous Detrich Collection, as well as custom clone and vignette exhibitions unique to each stop. After a long journey, the collection of over 100 vintage cameras is finally making a visit to the Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles starting on Thursday, October 14.

This stop of the tour includes a collection of Diana F+ cameras that have been customized by some of L.A.’s finest artists, illustrators, creative types, Lomographers and philanthropists. And Blik is one of them! All proceeds from the sale of the customized cameras will go to the participant’s charity of choice. Blik has chosen the Boy and Girl’s Club of Venice.

Below is Blik’s customized Diana F+ camera that’s up for bid. To see it in person, join us for opening night on October 14th to kick off the silent auction, plus there will be drinks, live music and free gifts. If you can’t make it, then stop by the gallery anytime by November 14 or place your bid online for this cool one-of-a-kind Blik wall graphic or on any of the tricked out Diana F+ cameras. On November 14th there will be a closing party to finalize any last minute bids for the clones.

For more information visit the Diana World Tour Los Angeles blog and check out all the customized cameras.

BLIK CUSTOM: BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF VENICE MURAL

BLIK CUSTOM: BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF VENICE MURAL

Our latest custom project takes us just down the street to our neighbors at the Boys & Girls Club of Venice.

Wanting to create a one-of-a-kind mural that spoke to the center’s kids and teens, the 45 ft x 9 ft graphic was designed to express the energy and excitement needed to communicate the positive influence of the BGCV within the Venice community. The use of bold color, silhouettes of kids, abstract elements as well as organic forms, takes shape to create a funky yet playful design that shouts both Venice Beach and the BGCV’s mission as a positive place for kids and teens. The design is intended to inspire, motivate, and amaze those who enter the club. The mural is located in the community center – during the school year the room is used for the Kids Café, karate, chess club and special events. In the summer, the space is utilized for everything under the sun.

As you can see from the photos, the completed mural serves as a bold statement that encourages kids to be diverse, energetic and artistic. Plus the kids love it! Thanks BGCV for letting us keep our creative juices flowing. We look forward to working with you again soon.

GIVING BACK: ART FOR CIVIL RIGHTS

GIVING BACK: ART FOR CIVIL RIGHTSManifest Equality Entrance Sign

As we’ve told you over the past few weeks, Blik was a proud sponsor of Manifest Equality which closed last Sunday in Hollywood. We had the pleasure of working with organizers Yosi Sergant and Apple Via to help transform the raw space into a sprawling, pop-up art gallery with more than 200 artists including street artists Robbie Conal, Swoon and Shepard Fairey, and illustrative painters Barry McGee, Gary Baseman and Elizabeth McGrath. Plus one of our favorites – the JUSTICE Mural by El Mac, Retna and Kofie. Watch the time lapse installation video.

The five-day show was a smashing success with 10,000 people trekking through the gallery to see art in addition to great musical lineups that included Fitz and The Tantrums, Sea Wolf, Ben Lee and Crystal Method.

While Manifest Equality has ended, the fight for full and equal rights still marches on. Visit Courage Campaign to find out more about repealing Proposition 8.
