Few & Far 5th Year Anniversary Block Party

June 4th, 2016 held significance and was a major milestone for Few and Far. Five years ago on that date – Meme, Founder of Few and Far, organized a massive mural project in Oakland and pulled together a group of women from all over the United States. Since then, members of Few and Far have created numerous murals across the globe, building with and empowering communities worldwide. Our collective is now comprised of 17 talented female artists that include women from Nepal to Ecuador. Every year the group gets together to celebrate that anniversary, and their hard work and achievements by creating large scale murals in different communities.

This June 4th weekend, the mural took place in Sacramento, in the alley of 24th and S streets in midtown. The Few and Far ladies were joined by10-15 other female artists from different cities and states, roughly totaling 22 muralists who painted all weekend. It was kicked off by a neighborhood block party featuring local vendors, Dj’s, and live mural painting which took place on a sizzling hot Saturday in June and was well attended by the community and neighbors. This was the 3rd Few and Far organized mural on this wall. img_3107

Meeting Of Styles San Francisco 2015

Few and Far were recently invited to take part in the San Francisco Meeting of Styles, a weekend of international graffiti and street art which took place over four blocks in the Mission district of San Francisco. Spanning the alleys of Osage and Lilac from 24th-26th streets, hundreds gathered to give the alleys fresh paint. Representing Few and Far were Deity, Ursula X Young, Agana, Ksra, Dime & Meme who chose a 60’s psychedelic theme to give Osage and 25th some flower power, a nod to San Francisco’s colorful history.
