Happy Monday. Finally made it over to Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale to check out the current art exhibition Nexus: Exploring The New Contemporary Art Movement, curated by the good people at Thinkspace Gallery. I’d never been to the library before, and it’s absolutely beautiful, set in a lovely park. The contributing artists for the current show includes major talent like Bumblebeelovesyou, Yoskay Yamamoto, CRYPTIK, Drew Merritt, Mark Dean Veca, and many more. . [View Gallery]

TSOTW: Kapache | AX Tee

This week’s T-Shirt of the Week is by my talented friend Kaplan a/k/a Kapache, in collaboration with Kauai-based label Aloha Exchange. Aside from looking amazing, proceeds from this design go towards the family of Lucas Makana Riley – a young man from Hawaii who was killed in a collision with a drunk driver. Available for both men and women.

Immigrant Song

Kind of a weird time to be an immigrant here in the US – the new president repeatedly described immigrants as unwanted criminals, and worse, during his campaign, and it seems to have resonated across the country. Kind of ironic as British and French settlers were unwanted immigrants in the eyes of the Native Americans, presumably. Furthermore, immigrants work hard, pay taxes, tend to commit less crimes, don’t get any representation, and they add a lot to the economy too. Here’s an interesting FastCompany article about some massive American companies, founded by immigrants.
