Art-filled adventures around the Bay from this April and May! First off, Pace Gallery teamLab in Menlo Park.
The main exhibits are very instagrammable. They’re mostly different light installations that run on infinitely variable algorithms, so they are supposed to factor in human interaction, but they’re not immediately responsive or anything, so the interactive aspect is not very obvious or gratifying. We had the most fun in the adjacent building, which is the kids section. In the screen below, you color in a 2D drawing of a vehicle or house, and once you scan it with the scanner, it renders a 3D object that appears in this animated space! So fun! I made the blue and purple bus with the heart window.
Trouble Coffee in West Oakland.
The Annie Liebovitz traveling gallery on portraits of women.
A monthly meetup of creative entrepreneurs called the Rising Tide Society! Here’s our local San Francisco “Tuesdays Together” chapter.
Artist Martin Hsu at his San Francisco studio.
Open company class with the San Francisco Ballet.
James Turrell at the Pace Gallery Palo Alto (very small, and not really worth its own trip out, but Turrell does interesting stuff with lights.)
Another Tuesdays Together meeting in San Francisco– this time at Weddington Way, an online dress shop.
Yo Yo Ma at Davies Symphony Hall.
Gwenyth Paltrow’s Goop pop-up shop inside Frank Lloyd Wright’s only building in San Francisco.
You can tell this building was a predecessor to Wright’s Guggenheim.
Portraits of Frank Lloyd Wright demonstrating different architectural joining techniques with his hands.
The Taiwanese American Cultural Festival at Union Square.
Taiwanese rapper Dwagie with Ho Chie.
My friend Tammy published a book, The Nourished Belly Diet! Here’s her awesome launch party.
Tammy is also an instructor at Hipline, so of course she led a bit of dancing at the party too!
Love having so much art and creativity in my life. Here’s to many more #awculturetime adventures to come.
