To commemorate its new women's collection, iconic surf label Quicksilver has selected six young women to be their "Visionaries in Residence" at siteLA, their multi-purpose creative space on the corner of Sunset and Rampart in Silver Lake. The ladies practice disparate disciplines, with their interests ranging from art to fashion to music to transportation design. The space has events that are free and open to the public.
One particular event/project that sounds fun and interesting is resident Sarah Anderson's collaborative mural for her drawing collective, Sumi Ink Club. The group is decorating siteLA's facade during rush hour in an effort to encourage passing commuters a chance to park their cars, grab a brush, and dream up their ideal method of transportation for the future. The project started on August 19th and will continue until August 27th. More info and exact times of when you can drop by and paint can be seen here.
