Exclusive Sneak Peek at “Wheat Paste Your Heart Out!”

November 11, 2011


Dietrich Meyer and Linnea Vegh were kind enough to ask me yesterday to come check out their behind-the-scenes preparations for Saturday’s Wheat Paste Your Heart Out show at Vox Populi. The show is a “a celebration of Philadelphia’s wheat pasters,” as the pair have said, and I can honestly tell you it will NOT disappoint.

If you don’t know about the project, let me try to sum it up for you. (Mind you it’s 2am and I haven’t slept in 20 hours. Bare with me.) Six weeks ago, Dietrich and Linnea installed a few dozen heavy wood panels throughout Philadelphia with a charge for Philly’s wheat pasters to cover the panels in their art. The panels would be later collected and shown at Vox. Simple enough, right? (Actually, I can tell you those panels were heavy as shit and I’m sure installing and uninstalling 30+ of them was kind of a hassle. I complain every time I have to put together anything from Ikea, so I can only image.) Anyway, after six weeks they pulled the panels down and started preparing for their show. (That’t were we are now, incase I lost you.) Only a few panels hadn’t been worked on (obviously those aren’t in the show,) and, oddly enough, a few were even stolen, but nevertheless they had more then enough creatively pasted panels left over… Seriously, I LOVE this idea, and I’m so excited for the show!!

Show is THIS Saturday, November 12th from 6-10pm at Vox Populi’s new AUX Space, 319 N 11th St, Third Floor.

This coming just a few weeks after Streets Dept Presents, I’m SOOOO excited that people are excited about street art in Philadelphia… I hope it keeps up!!

      I think if you go see the show you’ll change your mind. There’s TONS of stuff I’m not showing, and this is no where near what the show will look like all put together.
