Best No-Brow Art Bookstore And Gallery - 2008
Park Life is a quirky independent bookstore and gallery (and publisher, and gift store, andandand) in the Inner Richmond. All merchandise in this funky little store is carefully and lovingly chosen. From books on outsider artist Henry Darger, recent offerings from the likes of Barry McGee, Marcel Dzama, and Kota Ezawa, to Holga and fish-eye cameras and goofy David Shrigley postcard sets, Park Life covers the wide array of your arts-lovin' needs. And with the ever-humble goal of bringing affordable art to the community, owners Jamie Alexander and Derek Song at the very least make contemporary art accessible and fun.
