Making Beer for Friends is the Highest Form of Art

by John-Mark Ikeda

Making Beer for Friends is the Highest Form of Art, has been a collaboration between myself, Nicholas Price and everyone that has shared one of our home-brewed beers. Inspired by Tom Marioni’s piece, we are hoping to create a social environment filled with conversations and the potential for new friendships. As a symbol of our hard work, each beer explores the culture of gift-giving. So far we have had an amazing response.

Durning artist hours, old friends and new friends have been excited to share a beer with us. More importantly though, our conversations have transferred from one group to the next creating a place for all of us to speak about art and just get to know one another. I have enjoyed the great discussions, and both Nicholas and I are excited about the upcoming artist hours this week. Come join us, have a beer and partake in our piece.

This week's artist hours are Thurs. and Fri. from 4-6 pm and the closing party is Saturday the 20th from 5-8 pm. Come early if you can. Everyone has been complimenting us on our home-brew and sadly it doesn’t always last the entire time.
