It seems like so long ago when Joey Robert Parks met with us to explain his idea for the 26 Blocks project. Time sure went by fast. Joey has worked tirelessly to make his concept a reality. The reward is just a day away. The opening reception for 26 Blocks is tomorrow night at the After Hours Gallery.

We were honored that many of the artists recommended our services to Joey, and that he approached us in to be a part of the project. Working with all of the artists enlisted to participate has been a great experience. Its been fun to get a sneak peek of all of the images and stories that we printed for the show. Although, it can’t compare to seeing them assembled in the gallery space along with Rafael Navarro’s sculptures.

Joey can be seen here setting up one of the prints for the exhibit. From the Arizona Republic article.

Opening night is Friday May 7th from 6-9 pm at the After Hours Gallery, 116 W. McDowell Road. We hope to see everyone there!

In June the show will move to Monorchid, 214 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix. The tour is scheduled to end at the Burton Barr Public Library in Phoenix Dec. 26-Jan. 31, 2011.
