SPECIAL DELIVERY – A NIGHT OF ART
SPECIAL DELIVERY is a large scale mural exhibition featuring a number of prolific street artists from the Oakland / San Francisco Bay Area, including Element Advocate Mike Kershnar.
Over 3000 people rolled out to peep the three-story abandoned warehouse that’s filled with hundreds of new and refurbished murals.
Non-stop live hip-hop on the first story was cracking along with fresh pieces from BVRS and Jaut, while the second story featured death defying work from Swampy and Chert, an Oakland African Village installation by Dead Eyes, a Coyote cartoon graffiti church, and some clean SF funk from Sway, S8n, Jeans, and The Fresh Prince. The third floor had an insane DJ Dance party from Miggy Stardust in front of a classic Pemex burner. Ras Terms, Safety First, Oddfelllow, Edith, and Gats also came correct as always. If one were strong and brave enough to climb to the roof, you would know it was cracking up there as well.
Big ups to Endless Canvas for putting it all together. It was amazing to see so many generations and diverse backgrounds all celebrating the art together. Element kept it liquid with Yerba Mate, Coconut Water, and beers all night. It was definitely a night that will live on in Bay Area Art history.
