On Saturday Feb 16, a few of the Traina Design crew headed downtown to check out the Parachute Factory art installations.
The exhibition was presented by Yeller and Sezio within a bi-level warehouse and contained a variety of themes and mediums, all made on-site within the various rooms. In addition to the visual art, attendees enjoyed live music, Karl Strauss craft beer, and snacks from the MIHO Gastrotruck.
One of my favorite room installations was designed by local artist Christopher Konecki to appear like an urban war zone and included a series of painted bombs parachuting downward with ironic messaging written on them. At the end of this particular room, Konecki organized shards of wood and drilled into the concrete floor to convey an explosion.
After a couple hours of immersing in the art, music, and socializing we exited the packed event and were greeted with a massive line wrapping around the block of art-goers, anxiously awaiting to enter the show. Great to see so many San Diegans coming out to support a local show.
