A Bigfoot-inspired art show from the folks at Office will also feature works by supremely talented local artists Dave Eggers, Lisa Congdon, Jessica Hische, Alan Dye, Erik Marinovich, and other equally super friends. Proceeds from the art sales will benefit 826 Valencia (home of the Pirate Supply Store) and 826 Boston (home of the Bigfoot Research Center), the world's most inspiring nonprofit writing and tutoring centers for kids.
The collection includes several re-imagined Northern California tree rounds, dozens of vintage postcards with a hand-screened design, and more than 35 framed paintings. "We searched Gold Country, Reno and the Mission for amazingly awful old landscape paintings," says Jason Schulte, Office creative director. "Then we painted new art over them, hoping to make them as covetable as they were in their wood-paneled family room heyday."
