REMINDER! This is tonight
On Thurday, Conveyor/Fred Segal Santa Monica will be hosting a reception for the premiere west coast show of Skewville, which is some pretty exciting news for fans of street art. Their work revolves around the creation of hand-cut wooden, sneakers, or Dogs, that they toss over power lines all over the world. They began in 1999 and have tossed over 3,000 pair so far, including a couple of pair currently visible on Sunset in front of the Vice store.
Coast To Coast, the exhibit they created exclusively for this Conveyor show, will serve as their launch for a new series of limited edition Dogs: they created the new Coast To Coast shoe design, made 100 pair, will toss 50 and the remaining 50 will be for sale in their own specially designed boxes.
The show will also feature photos of Dogs tossed over power lines all over the world, and limited edition silk-screened wood posters. These guys have a great design sense, and, even if you’re not a fan of the Dogs project, the poster and packaging work should be great.
