Fun-A-Day is a simple concept that produces beautiful results. Participants choose a project and produce one piece of artwork every day for the entire month of January. The 31 resulting pieces create a narrative outlining each artist's journey through the first month of the year. Projects vary from lighthearted to serious, high-brow to low-brow. This year's list of mediums includes moustaches, drawings, dream interpretations, mini-typewriter stories, songs, push-ups, sculptures made from vacuum cleaner dust, sugar eggs, portraits of people in their bedrooms, and more!
The desire to create is a fundamental expression of humanity that we are often alienated from or fearful of. Fun-A-Day seeks to remove the barriers to creativity by offering opportunities and invitations for participation. We believe everyone is an artist and everything you make is art; we seek to create a welcoming forum for people to share what they do, to strengthen existing communities of artists, and to kick-start new ones.
The Fun-A-Day show will be held at Queen's Nails Projects, 3191 Mission Street, San Francisco. Q.N.P is a platform for both emerging and established artists to experiment with new forms of art practice. Visit www.queensnailsprojects.com for more information about the gallery. The Fun-A-Day show is one-night-only, free and all-ages. Come out and see what your friends (and future friends) have been up to during the first month of 2009!
