Our Transcend Popup Gallery Was a Blast!

March 27, 2015

Thanks to everyone who made it out to our San Francisco launch of Transcend with Bleacher Report and Boys & Girls Clubs of America! Held at 111 Minna on Wednesday, March 25th, 20 pieces of art were on display to kickoff the launch of Transcend. Over 200 people came out to enjoy the art, each other's company, the free booze and the food truck with delicious sliders and fries. Artists Alyssa Winans and Henry Kaye were in attendance as well (it's always great to get to catchup with our artists face-to-face). Checkout some photos below:
