Do you know the Owl Man?

owlsHere’s a story about the window:

The owl window on Dolores at 18th has been there for a really long time. It’s just someones front window filled from top to bottom with different owl tchotchkes.  A few years ago a friend of mine moved into the building and was living upstairs.  When I visited my friend for the first time at her new apartment I asked her what this “owl person” was like. My friend just said he was nice.

What’s a kids point of view of a neighborhood?

We were curious to find out so we held a workshop with kids and walked around the neighborhood to look for inspiration. The kids brought note pads to sketch, write and document what they saw. We helped them turn their notes into animations and sculptures that will become part of the Your Store installation at Artist Television Access in October.

Thanks to 826 Valencia for hosting our Create and Animate workshop.
