New signs. New ways to see them.

Greetings from Somerville!

There are a couple of things coming up this week, so we thought we would reach out to everyone with  a quick note.

Our newest sign previewed earlier tonight in NYC at the ACRIA's UNFRAMED 2012. Curated by Michael Cunningham and Margaret Russell, Editor in Chief at Architectural Digest. The main event will be held tomorrow night, WED June 6, at 400 Fifth Avenue, 36th floor Penthouse. Probably worth going just to see what the PHs at the Setai look like, if you haven't been, but there is also a bunch of art at good values: ACRIA asks the artists to create unique work for the benefit that can be offered at discount prices (so they can sell a bunch). The list of artists includes Richard Serra, Jeff Koons, Dzine, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Ed Ruscha, and tons more. CFYW will have a new sign, edition of 30, and an aluminum plaque, edition of 1. For more information on the event, contact Scott Drevnig.

Then back closer to home, we will be releasing another new sign on Friday at "Making Dollars," a group show at the Cambridge Innovation Center, Cambridge MA. Curated by Kristen Wawruck (NYC/Boston), it will include about a dozen artists. In addition to our new sign (edition of 10), we will have a listening post where you can hear 164 of our favorite messages from the past couple of years. Think "Best of CFYW" without commercial interruption.

Cambridge Innovation Center
One Broadway, Cambridge MA (in the heart of Kendall Square)
Opening: FRI June 8, 5-8pm. (We expect a good crowd!)

If you can't wait to see what the new signs look like, we have posted photos of them elsewhere on this site.

There are some other things coming up - we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, we are getting caught up with sticker requests - sorry for the delay, it's been more hectic than usual for our Sticker Department. You will all have yours soon!

And thanks to everyone who came out to artMRKT San Francisco a couple of weeks ago!
