Day two at the US Open of Surfing was another banger. The sun beat out the marine layer, Michael Dunphy was a stand out surfer and the art wall got another layer of paint on it; this time courtesy of the guys from animation production company, Titmouse. Looks pretty good, no? If you're down at the beach just snap a photo for the chance to have art from the day printed onto limited edition Converse and Hurley boardshorts. Just use the hashtag #usopenofsurf. See you on the sand!
We know the days during the US Open of Surfing are jam packed — but what about your nights? Come celebrate the innovation and art that is Phantom Fuse, next Tuesday in our H-space gallery at Hurley HQ from 6 - 9 pm. And for now, press play to see H-space come alive with Fuse.
The Blacked Out show ended up being a bright spot in our weekend — not that we're surprised or anything. Fun music, exciting artwork and friends made for a great time. The theme of the artwork was black and white with one color of the artist choice. This made for a nice range of styles from graffiti inspired works by Vizie, Scribe and Pose, to gallery artists Seonna Hong, Brandi Milne and Gary Baseman. Not to mention some of our local favorites like Jason Maloney, Stink and Bigfoot. Thanks to everyone who came out! Keep reading to check out all the great pictures from the event.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But in the case of last week's ART OF NOISE show, we'd venture a guess and say these pictures are worth a 100 punk shows, a few busted speakers, blown ear drums and a really good time. ART OF NOISE is a group show featuring work by the movers and shakers of the punk music scene — they define music and noise and fun. Which is exactly what was on hand for the opening reception last Thursday. Click through for more photos from the night, and make sure to stop by and check out the show, on display at 225 Forest in Laguna until August 5.
Our art department has truly outdone themselves this time. They've curated what is sure to be the biggest, rowdiest and loudest show we've ever thrown. THE ART OF NOISE is a group show of photographers, painters, screen printers and craftsmen who define the face of music. Featured artists include Ed Colver, Craig "Skibs" Barker, Corey Pollock and a whole lot more. Come check out the opening reception on June 7th from 6-9 at 225 Forest in Laguna and decide for yourself if punk is really dead. See you there!
Watch as the wall at Hobie in Corona Del Mar goes from Block Party to Fuse — or in other words, from rad to radder. Video: YB
Thanks to Dalek and team, the new wall at Hobie in CDM makes 3D glasses obsolete. Now that's True Innovation.
Tentacles! Ships lost at sea! The deep blue! Davy Jones' locker! And many more scary and salty things crawled into 225 Forest last night during the Laguna Beach Art Walk. Check the photos to see all the fun that was had. Photos: Derek Bahn
The Hurley Art Department spent last week at Marina High School in Huntington Beach for a mural collaboration. With the help of the art team, the students worked out a design to showcase the school’s diversity. The kids came up with the concept of using puzzle pieces to make up their school’s shield. Working with the school colors blue and gold, students were each able to design their own puzzle piece, creating a unified whole from individual parts. Last week saw the project’s completion along with a well deserved pizza party and high fives!
