So a little over a year ago I was part of an amazing event during SXSW called reCREATE, which brought some awesome artists together for a full day of painting the giant, concrete walls over at the HOPE Outdoor Gallery aka Castle Hill near downtown Austin. This is what MY ugly wall looked like:
Well THIS year HOPE gathered all that art & put it together in a beautiful, cohesive, hardcover book showcasing the different artists & enlightening the readers on the history of the HOPE campaign which has become a powerful community here in the city:& TODAY, June 26th, members of HOPE & of few of us artists will be signing & "tagging" this bad boy of a book for a special art Happy Hour 6-9pm on the patio of new supporter, Hotel San Jose located on S. Congress. The featured artists that will be on hand signing with their hands & high giving YOUR hand include:
Cody Schibi (that's ME!)
Dj Chino Casino will be spinning up the decks and drink specials will be available to all guests. With 100% of the proceeds from these books supporting the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, there's no need for you NOT to come out & have a good time with us.
Here's the Facebook event with pretty much ALL the information above too..
Stick around as there are more signings in the works including a special one at Book People Austin in August. That's gonna pretty much rule toooooo!
Okay, I hope to see you there to support us local artists….bye!
