Sunglasses at Night: San Francisco
Oakley and the Art Institute of San Francisco got together for the third leg of the Sunglasses at Night Art Tour.
Oakley again sent the students of all majors at the Institute 35 white Oakley Hijinx Sunglasses and had them design their own art onto the glass. The creative designs were stunning this time around.
Oakley artist Andrew Petterson was again in attendance to Field questions and talk with the students as well as announce a winner for the event
“As the tour rolls on, I feel like these students are too talented for their own good, making it basically impossible for me to judge!”said Petterson. “It was definitely too hard to decide again!! ”
Special Guest and Oakley music artist Kelley James performed and thrilled the students and faculty. Kelley was defenitly an amazing highlight to the evening.
The evening capped off with the announcement of the $1500 scholarship winner and the runner-up, who won $500 worth of Oakley eyewear. First place went to Erik Fletes, who channeled Oakley’s heritage and had a wave squence onto the sunglass and box.Second place went to Clay Brown who was extatic and overwhelmed by the win. His piece was called “maps” in which he used local clippings of maps from San Francisco and carefully attached them to the Hijinx. Clay will receive the newest pieces in the Limited Edition Oakley Artist Series for his second place win.
The students dined on appetizers, looked at amazing art and consumed Red Bull while listening to the tunes of Oakley’s own Dj Dax. Thanks to everyone for an amazing event.
Special thanks go out to Jennifer Tomaro and Lorraine Woodcheke.
The tour’s next leg of the stop will be at the Art Institute of Los Angeles in July, combining two schools and tons of talent…
