I met Lisa Casoni of Porch Gallery Ojai and the Ojai Art Festival a few weeks back and she introduced me to the ideas behind her collaboration on a brand new art festival here in town. We talk about Fallen Fruit of Ojai map which shows where you can find publicly accessible fruit in the downtown neighborhoods. I blogged about that a few days ago and wrote about it as well in the Ojai Valley News.
In our interview we talk about Gordon Matta-Clark, who’s body of work inspired the Ojai Art Festival and earned main street Ojai with its very own garbage wall built by Greg at the MOB Shop bike shop. Here’s a video to learn more about Matta Clark from the Whitney Museum.
I enjoyed this interview very much and I think you will too. Lisa is involved in some really great artistic activities, products and services that are revolutionizing the way a festival happens and artists and patrons interact.
I add a new sponsor link to my side wall. PACT APPAREL organic underwear, socks and tees.
