Art Heals: Manifest Equality Opens

Spray-painted mural by Retna, El Mac & Kofie

As Manifest Equality prepares for its VIP opening tonight, we are thrilled to present a sneak peek of the space. Blik proudly transformed the raw space into a massive pop-up art exhibition that goes live tonight with events continuing through Sunday.

We created the exterior banner for the giant sign outside; a quote “with certain unalienable rights, that among these are … liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that wraps around the interior of the space (pictured); interior and exterior graphics for the onsite shop; the logo/entrance wall that proclaims Manifest Equality’s mission statement and an exterior “Equality” arrow on Vine (pictured.)

“Being a part of Manifest Equality has been a tremendous experience for Blik,” said Scott Flora, co-founder of Blik. “The high caliber of artists involved have created an inspiring visual call to action that speak volumes about the fight for equal rights.”

The Manifest Equality gallery will be open to the public, March 3-7. Visit http://www.manifestequality.com/ for more details.

BLIK SUPPORTS MANIFEST EQUALITY

Today we trekked to Hollywood and toured the Manifest Equality gallery. Blik will be helping transform the raw space into a pop-up art gallery showcasing over 200 artists. We can’t wait to show you the finished space in a few weeks; below is a sneak peek of the before. Fun fact: the space was formerly used to house Oscar statues.

Lead by the Yosi Sergant of Taskforce, the gallery will gather an array of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to celebrate and demand full and equal rights for all Americans. Taskforce’s mission is to give voice to the voiceless and to utilize art and creative thinking to engage the country for progressive action. We are proud to support Taskforce in their effort to engage a community of independent artists to make change in America.

The Manifest Equality gallery will be open to the publicMarch 3rd – March 7th, 2010. Check out http://www.manifestequality.com/ for more details.

NO STRINGS ATTACHED NO STRINGS ATTACHED Our friends and neighbors at the Boys & Girls Club of Venice invited our very own Scott Flora and Jerinne Neils, along with Christina Cody from Storyboards, Inc., to adjudicate at the Fine Arts Exhibit, part of their, “No Strings Attached” Art Show this past January 15th. Winners from this local competition will be submitted to the Pacific Regional Fine Arts Judging & Exhibit in Kennewick, WA and could go on to the National Fine Arts Exhibit, displayed at BGCA’s annual National Conference. The judges were responsible for selecting nominees, based on the age of the member, skill and artistic sensibility expressed in their work. Out of 50 entries, 4 pieces from the exhibit were selected. Jerinne shared, “Scott and I had a great time and were thrilled to participate. There are some very talented artists in the Venice club. We’re hopeful that these winners go all the way!” Good luck artists!
