After seeing the turn back the century game between the Cubs and the Giants this past weekend in San Francisco, and seeing how amazing the Cubs’ throwbacks were, we loved seeing these photos of baseball players in the 1800s. Lots of white guys, interesting facial hair, levitating baseballs, and great uniforms… wonderful stuff. (via)

Richard Serra, Keith Haring… and Jeremy Fish

What a two week stretch for Jeremy Fish. First, he just released his Spring collection of superFishal gear with Upper Playground, and then his public sculpture in the Lower Haight was named #3 in the entire city by SF Weekly. Who came in first? Keith Haring. Second? Richard Serra. So now it goes Haring… Serra… Fish in the world of art. Not bad, Mr. Fish. And yours didn’t need a corporation saying okay.

The Liquid Picnic Table

There can’t be any reason to make a 10-foot long dripping picnic table except that it looks incredible and makes your public space that much cooler and thought provoking, thus making your citizenry that much more proud to call their town home… so its cool. While in residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, artist Michael Beitz created this piece… via.

Automatic Painting: 5 hours, 86 shapes, 85 people

Eltono created this interesting concept for the Art Re-Public Festival at Yoyogi Park, Tokyo, this past May. Pretty rad children’s experiment in which 85 people created 86 shapes in 5 hours, (hence the title), but we don’t think you have to be a child to appreciate how much fun this public collaboration must have been!

Bret Easton Ellis, author of “American Psycho,” on Charlie Sheen

ad455c555a563943.jpg Bret Easton Ellis, author of “American Psycho,” on Charlie Sheen public piece personal moment headlines gaga flash video flash easton ellis daily beast creator charlie sheen bret easton ellis

We think our favorite line that Bret Easton Ellis wrote in this piece on Charlie Sheen is “What Sheen has exemplified and has clarified is the moment in the culture when not giving a fuck about what the public thinks about you or your personal life is what matters most—and what makes the public love you even more (if not exactly CBS or the creator of the show that has made you so wealthy).”

Because that is what makes Sheen, Kanye, Gaga, or Barry Bonds so famous… they don’t give a fuck, and we pay attention because of it.

Street Art View

With all of the possibilities that google maps have provided the public with over the past few years, this one is actually really rad. Street Art View, which works the same as most google street views, is a new feature that allows the viewer to travel around the world getting a pretty close look at street art all over, without having to buy the plane ticket or even put on your pants. You can add new locations of artwork as well as send your favorites to friends. Pretty useful site for viewing the pieces you’ll never get a chance to see in person.

bea3c957d2cisco1.jpg Erica Il Cane’s “We Were Living In the Woods” @ FIFTY24SF Gallery works on paper woods The Citrus Report sounds pretty public press release over the past italian FIFTY24SF Gallery citrus report anthropomorphic animal murals

We can’t wait for this one. Erica Il Cane, the great Italian muralist, street artist, and fine artist, is coming to San Francisco to show at FIFTY24SF Gallery on November 11th. Even the name of the show, We Were Living In the Woods, sounds pretty cool.

A little bit from the press release: “As a major contributor to an increasingly progressive and elaborate street art and mural movement occurring in Europe over the past 5 years, Erica il Cane (translating to “Eric the Dog”) gained international recognition for his anthropomorphic  building-sized animal murals throughout Italy and the continent. With fellow contemporaries Blu, Sam3, Escif, and San, Erica’s large-scale murals have been viewed as fine art done within the public’s view. We Were Living in the Woods will feature works on paper and on-site installations.”

November 11th – December 30th, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 11th, from 7:30PM – 10:00PM

Shanghai World Expo closes, China’s biggest tourism hit ever

2dc3acd90705x405.jpg Shanghai World Expo closes, China’s biggest tourism hit ever ultimate tour the ultimate the provinces some popular six month event shanghai world public News inconveniences city citrus report china bringing people 72 million visitors

If you can draw 72 million tourists to an event, something tells us you are doing quite alright. The Shanghai World Expo did just that. 72 million! That is the ultimate in bringing people together. Too many people. It probably got sweaty.

ArtDaily reports, “The massive, six-month event aimed at showcasing China’s rise as a modern industrial power drew mainly local visitors, many of them ordinary folk from the provinces who flooded into the city by the tour busload-full, cramming the city’s hotels, subways and other public places.

They found waits of up to 10 hours for some popular national pavilions, sweltering summer temperatures, long walks and other inconveniences for what could be once-in-a-lifetime direct contact with foreign places and people.”
