A Friday Night "Character Assassination"

Thanks to all who came by plane, car, Muni, bike, skateboard and foot to see David Choe's "Character Assassination". If you were not at Fifty24SF last Friday this is what you missed. The private view kicked off at 5. The sold pins began to cover the walls. The line stretched down Fillmore. As doors opened at 7, the gallery came to life as eager admirers spilled into the room. The walls were filled with original paintings, sold out prints and intimate backdrop photos, revealing an artistic evolution of comic characters to iconic figures. Faces lit up and cameras snapped away. As Choe arrived the crowds inside and out jumped at the opportunity to meet the man in the bright pink shirt. Many fellow Upper Playground artists joined in attendance. If you happen to have missed the reception, "Character Assassination" will hang through March 24th.
