Amoeba has joined forces with the folks at Converse for a unique celebration of musical self-expression. We’ve collected Chuck Taylor All Stars from the Amoeba Music and Converse community and curated them into an exhibition that celebrates self-expression from a truly unexpected perspective.
Come see Chucks from musicians like Patti Smith to Amoeba’s own Marc Weinstein. Every pair is a portrait. Every scuff, rip and mark is a memory. Every beer stain and paint drop tells the story of the people who made them their own.
In addition to the portraits you’ll be able to have a sneak peek into the psychedelic world of musician King Tuff where you’ll experience a journey through his mind with a virtual reality film. Get immersed in a 360° environment, complete with 360° sound, where you’re in control of where you look.
On opening night Thursday, April 30, we’ll have music from our very own byrdsol as well as free beer from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs through May 6.
