On Friday night, the San Francisco Art Exchange hosted a reception for their latest exhibition, "Art of Prince", featuring the work of artist and designer Anthony Malzone. The show included seven pieces that have been used on Prince's website or for concert posters in Europe. Below are some pics from the event which was well attended and funky - local DJ's Bombhiphop were in the house spinning Prince tunes all nite.
If you missed the live broadcast we did from the event, you can watch the archive of it here. Anthony gave us a great tour of his work and shared some nice tidbits about working with the purple one. And we talked to some fans who were having a good time at the party.
So, what's your favorite piece of the seven that were on display? Not sure any are left to buy however. On Friday night, Anthony tweeted this: "Thank you to everyone who made it out/tuned in for the live stream. One man purchased the entire collection!!!!!!!"- DrFB
The Art of Prince exhibit in San Francisco opens tonight and we are going to be trying something new and cool for you and for the drfunkenberry.com
We’ll have someone in San Francisco broadcasting live so that all of you who can’t make it will at least be able to peek in on the event. The broadcast starts at 6pm Pacific.
There will also be a chat room below where the video will be and you will be able to jump in there to chat with other viewers and to send us any questions or requests during the show. We’ll be communicating with the crew that’s there, so if there’s something you want to see, or someone you want them to talk to, let us know – we’ll pass it along.
We got word today of a new art show opening in San Francisco on December 9th. "Art of Prince" will feature works by Anthony Malzone, whose designs have been featured extensively on Prince's website, as well as the poster for Prince's August 2009 show in Monaco.
All of the prints in the show are limited-edition, numbered and signed by the artist. The show will be at the San Francisco Art Exchange in Union Square.
The exhibition opens December 9, with a public reception on December 11. Lotusflow3r members will be able to purchase Malzone's art at a discount.
I wonder if we'll see any of these designs on an upcoming DVD release? We'll update you if we hear more news. - Dr.FB
