Thanks to Project One for hosting a great party and all the artists who helped make a terrific show last night. We wish we could have given out grants to everyone, but we only had enough money to give out three.

Packard Jennings

Packard Jennings' work invades the lives of everyday people and isn't confined to a gallery. Imagine finding his anarchist action figure at Wal-Mart or one of his brochures at Walgreens directing you to locally-owned stores. You would have to stop and consider what you were looking at -- who left it there? Why? In a consumer culture in which we're bombarded with empty sales slogans every day, Jennings makes us stop and think about the way we interact with the world.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
