I Don’t Believe in You Either, A Bigfoot Art Show
San Francisco design studio Office conceived, curated, and designed “I Don’t Believe in You Either,” a Bigfoot-inspired art exhibition benefitting 826 Valencia and 826 Boston, the world’s most inspiring nonprofit writing and tutoring centers for kids.
The Office team searched Gold Country, Reno, and the Mission for amazingly awful old landscape paintings, then painted new Bigfoot-inspired art over them, hoping to make the pieces as covetable as they were in their wood-paneled family room heyday. This resulted in a collection of 38 original framed paintings and 100 vintage postcards, as well as a limited edition show poster.
