First Friday art opening for Roc City Skatepark
Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE coffee. I dream about it and drool over the perfect blend and perfect sip. So when I was asked to do an art show in a coffee shop, I said YES! And this isn’t just any coffee shop, but the super nerdy, scientific coffee creators: Joe Bean
For First Friday, we held an art opening at Joe Bean Coffee for the Rochester Skatepark as a fundraiser and launch of the new RCP blend, Debajo del Puente (Under the Bridge)…. the coffee was a collaboration between Joe Bean Coffee Roasters and the Roc City Skatepark (I helped). 10% of the sale of the coffee gets donated to the skatepark, so stop down and pick up a pound or two. Sales of the art also benefit the skatepark, so be generous 🙂
Here are some pictures from the art opening at Joe Bean Coffee, with le Petit Poutine truck and Joe Bean’s brand new coffee bike cart, another collaboration with the RCP! The staff and I were sporting RCP fake tattoos and selling merch. Special thanks to Nate and Lisa for running the merch booth and chatting about the skatepark project.
Thank you to all who stopped down to support me and the project. It was a really fun evening and was packed all night long.
About the Roc City Skatepark project:
Let’s build a world-class, public, cement skatepark and change the face of Rochester. For good.
That’s what a group of involved citizens and small business owners are doing. Together with the City of Rochester’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Human Services, as well as the New York State Department of Transportation, the Citizens Planning Group is working to build and maintain a skatepark for skateboarders and BMX riders. The Roc City Park (RCP) will be a world-class, public cement skate park located in the heart of the city of Rochester. The park is currently slated to be the largest in the United States and will be located under the Susan B. Anthony bridge.
