Every so often we get sent a press release that is just so US, which is exactly what happened when we got sent information on an exhibition entitled Streets of Sydney. I know, right? It was as though they named it in HONOUR of us, or something. As the winner of the Dead Space Living Artists competition via Higher Learning, Luke Williams got the chance to transform the entire General Pants Bondi Junction store into a living installation of his work inspired by Sydney's streets (side streets are of course included). Talk about ego satisfaction. It's clearly Luke's moment to shine, as the judging panel loved what he had done so much that they soon offered him a job as an in-house designer with General Pants. It's all been made possible by the team at Higher Learning, and you should know by now that "dream come true" stories make us feel ridiculously fuzzy inside. Yes, we are corny and enjoy wearing UGG boots. That is not entirely relevant but GOD they are comfy.
All of the artworks have been available for purchase via a silent auction, with all proceeds being donated to Oasis, a great Sydney charity for youth in trouble.
This Thursday evening, everyone is invited to view the artworks, place a bid on the pieces, celebrate dreams and cool charities and share a beverage at the project's closing exhibition party at Lo-Fi Gallery in Darlinghurst. It's on from 6pm and Lo-Fi is located at 383 Bourke St. Go and get FUZZY.
