Last week while being on site of our Timberland collaboration in San Francisco, we were able to check out SF’s own native Barry McGee’s China Boo exhibit.
McGee rose out of the graffiti movement in the 90s with heavy urban influence. McGee’s iconic pantings consist of abstract backdrops with drips, patterns and colors.
“The more I learned about the art world, the more my interest in what was going on outside of it increased, I didn’t have any desire to bring graffiti inside the school’s walls or anything.”
Check out the China Boo exhibit at Ratio 3 in San Francisco until December 9, 2015!
New England born company Timberland, worldly renown for their flawless craftsmanship in outdoor apparel and footwear, teamed up with Publish Brand to introduce a limited collection of the Chelsea boot and the classic Oxford silhouette.
With the concept of merging West coast style with East coast functionality, these pieces feature the best of both worlds.
To celebrate the recent release of the “Reinventing California” collection, the two brands came together at the beautiful Timberland shop in the heart of bustling downtown San Francisco on Saturday, November 7th.
Here, any inquires of the brands or the collaboration were happily answered by Publish’s CEO, Timberland’s Senior Footwear Director, and other members of the team. They took the time to sign shoeboxes for any desiring fans who purchased a pair from the collection, while surrounding guests roamed the shop enjoying complimentary drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the warm ambiance.
Available in the traditional wheat and timeless black leather, the shoes were elegantly displayed front of shop for those who wanted to get a real feel of the West coast design aesthetic and the premium East coast weather-proof quality. It’s no surprise that the shop sold out of the black Chelsea boot by the end of the 3 hour event.
As the successful night came to an end, the teams connected over bringing this collaboration to life, their experiences in the industry and truly getting to know one another. Not only is it important to share a sense of camaraderie among the brands, especially executing a huge project as “Reinventing California,” but to meet the people who support the vision and getting to know theirs is essential in continuing on “Today for Tomorrow.” The exchange of ideas, gratitude, love and support filled the shop, exuding positive vibes throughout.

– James Turrell
American artist, Turrell is widely known for this experimentation with light and space. He first began experimenting with light in his Santa Monica studio by covering windows and allowing a certain amount of light from the outside to come through the openings.
He then began a series of sky spaces which consist of a large enclosed room with a roof opening to view the sky though the opening.
Turrell has a permanent exhibit in Las Vegas at The Shops at Crystals. If you haven’t seen Turrell’s work in person yet, keep your eyes open on when his exhibit will hit a city near you!

LA based artist, David DiMichele, plays a game with his viewers through the manipulation of light, angles and composition to heighten an experience.
DiMichele’s work is not often displayed in museum galleries but rather on his studio table. At first glance, you would think these are large installations but instead they are miniature sized and photographed.
DiMichele was influenced by Robert Smithson for breaking down the barrier between sculpture, installation and photography.
