Phillip Hua - Ups and Downs!

Phillip Hua writes to us via his recent newsletter that despite it's ups and downs, he's enjoying a great year and hopes that it gets better! This month, check out San Francisco's 7x7 Magazine where he has a published image, and Interior Design Magazine, where his work is mentioned.

On another professionally successful note, we're proud to let you know that Hua answered the San Francisco Art Commission's call to artists for the Art in Storefronts Program.

Juried by the San Francisco Arts Commission and Triple Base Gallery, Hua's been selected as one of the artists to participate in the Art in Storefronts, a pilot program to temporarily place original art installations by San Francisco artists in vacant storefront windows.

According to Luis R. Cancel, Director of Cultural Affairs for San Francisco, “This initiative is important for two reasons: it transforms vacant storefronts into attractive exhibition spaces and provides greater visibility to the creative community that calls San Francisco their home. Art in Storefronts recognizes the role that artists can play in promoting economic and community vibrancy.”

Hua's installation will launch in October on Central Market Street and will continue through January 2010. The location has not yet been announced, but details will come soon!
