If there’s a wall dividing art and design, it’s less a monolithic brick barrier than a thin, transparent membrane through which ideas and people freely pass. Formal distinctions between the two have dissolved to the point where artists’ business cards frequently boast hyphenated titles, and designers, in turn, are celebrated in exhibitions in blue-chip galleries. These days, creative cross-pollination is the name of the game.
Case in point: The Thin Line: Art & Design & Everything in Between, the forthcoming exhibition by Matthew Honda (partner and graphic designer at Interval in Honolulu) and Benjamin King (illustrator and graphic designer in San Francisco). The exhibition, comprised of San Francisco natives and Honoluluans whose professional backgrounds include publication design, advertising, illustration, graphic design, art education, film and photography, will demonstrate how thin the line between art and design is at the moment.
This event will also offer a ticket auction for works being displayed. How it works…
1. Browse the gallery
2. Purchase an auction ticket for $3 each.
3. Drop the ticket into the box assigned to desired artwork.
You can purchase more than one ticket, and you may bid for as many pieces as you’d like. However, you can only win once.
At the end of the night, we’ll draw one ticket from each box and the selected ticket holder will be able to purchase their desired piece.
The Artists/Designers involved have agreed to donate the proceeds generated through auction ticket sales to Interisland Terminal/R&D
All artwork will be purchased directly through the artists/designers involved.
