I’m taking a typography class taught by a very cool teacher who suggested that we visit some art museums and local galleries in the area. So a friend and I went to some spaces in La Jolla last Friday.
Pleasure Point by Nancy Rubins / Untitled by Mauro Staccioli
San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla
Unfortunately, majority of the museum was closed because they were working on a new exhibit. But, we did take a walk through the sculpture garden and checked out the Photography in Mexico exhibit for free!
Going Out of Business by Mel Bochner
The Quint Contemporary Art is just a flew blocks away from the MOCA. The Troublesome Exhibit, which sadly ends tomorrow, featured some cool pieces including two of Matthew Brandt’s works made entirely out of bubble-gum.
Troublesome by Robert Barry / SpectroSonic – Red by Johannes Girardoni
Really enjoyed Girardoni’s piece which incorporates color, light, and sound.

After the gallery, we had a late lunch at IKEA and both ordered a salad, hazelnut chocolate, and swedish meatballs.
I also scored a $5 hamper!
Speaking of art and design, I visited SDSU for Tom Sachs‘ lecture about two weeks ago! Overall, it was a really insightful talk and it was great to know the reasons behind most of his grand projects, especially like that of the “Space Program”. He even wore the Nike Mars Yard shoes he designed!
EdwinHimself put together a post of 5 valuable quotes from that night. Check them out.
Around this time last year, KICKS/HI and Converse collaborated to produce a beautiful Tiger Camo Chuck Taylor All Star. I had the pleasure of seeing these beauts on my feet this summer when I was back home.
At first I didn’t think they were for “me”, but having tried them on, I already knew what the hype was about. Unfortunately, I didn’t purchase them and I sort of regret that decision. But lo and behold, the brands are back at it again this winter with the Tiger Camo II – a pair in the same pattern but in a solid gray and black. You’d be crazy if you didn’t want these in your closet!
Shoes have really been on my mind lately! These will be available on November 10th at both KICKS/HI locations (Honolulu and Guam) and St. Alfred‘s in Chicago. Only 600 pairs will be sold – so grab a pair quick! Who knows, maybe you’ll find yourself singing this Lil Ugly Mane song while wearing them?
