“A Product of Design” // Exhibition at the Scion Installation LA Gallery

Posted in Artists, Events, Friends by Gluekit on September 10, 2011

Gluekit (the team behind Part of It)  is curating the show “A Product of Design” at the Scion Installation LA Gallery in Culver City. The show will be on view from September 17 to October 8, 2011 with an opening reception on September 17 which we’d love for you to attend! Please RSVP here.

The show is a celebration of the passion projects of designers we love, and we’ve brought together a number of our favorite designers to showcase their products and artwork. Part of It artist Geoff McFetridge will have some original artwork in the show– he’ll be showing with the skateboard company Solitary Arts, which he runs with Yong-Ki Chang. SA Family members Jef Hartsel, Bob Lake,  photographer Isaac McKay-Randozzi (Color Magazine, SLAP, Juxtapoz), and Mark Kushimi (owner of Contrast Magazine out of Hawaii) will also be showing their work.

Other folks in the show are: Ben Blanc Studio, Booji, Best Made Company, Colophon Foundry (all the way from the UK!), JB Classics, Hugo & Marie, Various Projects, and The Quiet Life.
