DAVe Live In Person

me and DAVe

My favorite artist, DAVe Warnke, was at Timbuk2 this evening making art to raise money for his "Street Art" program for high school kids. Instead of the 3 "R's," he teaches the 3 "P's":

Purpose: What is the purpose of your art? Is it personal, political, or something else?

Placement: If you put your art on a trashcan or a park bench or a telephone pole, does it beautify the park bench, or does it destroy the park bench?

Permission: It's usually a good thing if you can get permission to place your art.
