My good friend Tammy was paralyzed in a car accident a couple months after me. We did not know each other at the time, but were connected via Facebook through mutual friends. She would say and talk about how I inspired her but as time went on she definitely continues to inspire me, to this day. Forever continuing with her rehab one way or another and working on day-to-day tasks improving her quality of life. As with most of us paralyzed people in this country, our medical insurance only covers the basics, if that, making every step forward very hard. Please check out her video below and donate what you can HERE.. If you live in the San Jose area, she is also having a couple benefits in the next couple of weeks. Find her and those benefits on her Facebook HERE..

On the second episode of our new series Trash to Treasure, we link up with Brooklyn-born-and-raised artist Anthony Vasquez, aka AVone, for some more trash-to-treasure goodness.
For those unfamiliar with AVone, he can be compared to a modern-day New York City version of Raymond Hains. He’s worked on a number of major projects over the course of his career, including works commissioned by ESPN and the Brooklyn Nets, and the influence of his hometown shines through his textural work.

Saturday, June 13th, marks the first day that art collective Few & Far will start work on a large scale mural in the heart of Oakland at 2430 Mandela Parkway. The building, which buys non-recyclable plastics and then resells them to specialized buyers, is one of the largest recycling facilities in the San Francisco area.
Situated directly across the street from locally owned soul food eatery Brown Sugar, this mural will focus on representing Oakland’s diverse culture and its long-time residents of the city.
