Launching Sacramento Style

This was my first year attending Launch in Sacramento, CA. "Launch is a multi-disciplinary audio/visual festival that connects people with art, music, fashion, and design."  I do not believe I have been to anything quite like this. As one of the featured artist (June) on, my work was featured in room M, how appropriate. So, take a peek if you were unable to make it to Launch. This event was exciting and had so many different high quality local goodies to feast my eyes on for several hours. I have been a part of festivals and events, however there was something about taking over a hotel that gave this event a real sense of community, which I love. So whether you were swimmin' in the pool, hoppin' from fashion to fashion or listenin' to the beats, you were able to tour your new community for the night and meet some characters along the way.

Up the stairs we go, to room M.

Next up is painter Jeff Musser, who is the January 2011 Featured artist of You can check out his profile page (here) and his website (here). Jeff is quite the fun character and a very disciplined painter.

And that's all folks! For a complete list of the music, fashion, artist, and architecture check out the Launch website and maybe, just maybe you will come next year.

The Museum of Monterey

Last Monday I attended the New Members night at the Museum of Monterey. They released the new plans for the much anticipated second floor. Below is an image of the future plans. If you are interested in becoming a member or learning more about the museum you can visit their website, here. Enjoy and I hope if you are in the area you are able to check out the work and go inside the fabulously made over store.
