I had the great pleasure to meet Teresa Nittolo, who is the present-day owner of The Original Firehouse, the root of the Firehouse in The Firehouse Kustom Rockart Company. I am happy to announce that I am having an art show at The Original Firehouse, the very place where Ron Donovan and I got our artistic start. This is a very rare opportunity to visit the place where The Firehouse began – a return to The Roots.
“The Roots” Art Show
Firehouse Kustom Rockart Company, Jacknife Posters (UK), Jorge Gamboa (paintings), Chase Marshall (handmade lamps and art)
Bands have been added! We’ll rock out to Burnt House and Hogwind
The Original Firehouse, 1648 Pacific Avenue, San Francisco
Thursday, March 8, 2012, 6pm until late.
I will be exhibiting rare and formerly unavailable posters and prints for this very special evening!
Teresa Nittolo plans to continue this artistic tradition, as quoted in The Bold Italic (February 17, 2012), she “plans to make Firehouse a multifaceted space that would include a café with outdoor seating, a small but well-curated library, a market-like area of rotating local vendors and artisans, a massive event space upstairs, and a rooftop garden. They are staring down the home stretch and they need their community’s support to get them across the finish line. Their dream is big and has come with even bigger challenges, but it’s wholly committed to bringing people together to create an inspiring story and space.”
Unfortunately, Firehouse 8 has gone into foreclosure (THEY ONLY HAVE UNTIL MARCH 8th) and Teresa and Gavin need help to hold onto it and bring their big dreams into reality. Angel investors take note. If this building goes into foreclosure, it will most certainly never be an art space again. Teresa is so very close! She needs your help! Help keep the Firehouse 8 Project alive and heading towards success!!
