Oakland Recycling Center gets Face-lift from Female Art Collective

Alison Casey
May 39, 2015

Oakland, CA – Saturday, June 13th, marks the first day that art collective Few & Far will
start work on a large scale mural in the heart of Oakland at 2430 Mandela Parkway. The
building, which buys non-recyclable plastics and then resells them to specialized buyers,
is one of the largest recycling facilities in the San Francisco area. Situated directly across
the street from locally owned soul food eatery Brown Sugar, this mural will focus on
representing Oakland’s diverse culture and its long-time residents of the city.
Few & Far is an all-female art collective compiled of artists from around the US and
beyond, a few of whom call San Francisco their home. Along with three Bay Area artists,
12 women will be flying in from across the U.S. to paint the massive wall. This project is
especially significant to Few & Far because June 2015 marks the fourth year since the
collective’s inception. The group’s goals are to travel, paint, skateboard, empower
women and girls, and to help those less fortunate when possible. Few & Far has been
involved in numerous non-profit events over the last 4 years, as well as donated time and
energy to many social causes.

Each mural they complete encapsulates an organic salt of the earth spirit; with this
particular piece the women of Few & Far seek to bolster outside awareness of Oakland’s
rich culture, its native communities and the original residents of a city filled with civic
pride. With gentrification and cost-of-living increases working synergistically to slowly
displace Oakland’s people, Few & Far wants this mural to make a positive statement
about a strong community of all races living and working together in Oakland.

Skateboarding Hall of Fame 2015

The International Skateboarding Hall of Fame was created in 2009 by Todd Huber, proprietor and co-founder of SKATELAB skatepark and museum in Simi Valley, California.

“I’m the biggest fan of skateboarding, ever, and I noticed that waterskiing had a Hall of Fame. So I thought skateboarding deserves its own Hall of Fame as well,” said Todd Huber, adding: “The award has been growing steadily and is now in its sixth year. And looking around the room, all the key people in skateboarding are here tonight. That really says something about what we are doing for skateboard history.”

This sentiment was echoed by the master of ceremonies, 1970s professional skateboarder Dave Hackett who reminded the audience: “We are all privileged to have been able to follow our hearts and dreams into skateboarding.”

For the first time in Hall of Fame history, this year’s list of inductees also included professional skateboarders from the 1990s – Elissa Steamer and John Cardiel – because the period in time that is now eligible for the historic award.

MADC’s opens 2nd of May at Gallery Wallworks in New York. Here is a little info on the show:

“Even though heavily abstracted, MadC’s canvases are compiled of graffiti pieces assembled through energetic, layered brush strokes. The many transparent layers create an intriguing depth in each piece. For this exhibition MadC chose to paint mainly small format pieces – bits and pieces. All 20+ canvases have never been seen before. In addition to the canvases, gallery Wallworks will release a new 8 layer MadC screen print. Gallery Wallworks and MadC welcome you to the opening on Saturday, May 2nd.”
