THE BLOCC: OFFICIAL SYMBIOSIS AFFILIATES
This year was one to remember as Oregon had VIP viewing this year for the most epic Total Solar Eclipse which was the the First Total Solar Eclipse in USA Since 1979! This is the first total eclipse of the Sun visible from the contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) since February 26, 1979. The last time a total eclipse was visible from coast to coast was on June 8, 1918.
So we decided to take this monumental moment and Eclipse city krews between the Bay Area + Pacific NorthWest areas and throw the first ever BLOCC party at the Pegasus Project PDX art studio warehouse, which was an official affiliate of the Symbiosis Gathering Oregon Eclipse Festival 2017 held in Prineville, OR.
If anything taught us here at the Pegasus Art Studio Warehouse that it sometimes takes a village to help create a master piece. As with most things within life + art is that often the smallest of details can make the entire piece whole. As the vision of of creating a sacred space that is safe + functionally creative, it was apparent that one of our main core values is community as W.A.O. We Are One.
What feels quite like the progression of rags to riches, it was decided to have all hands on deck to prepare for future manifestations to come. So enjoy some memories created by those who came together and worked endlessly through the evenings leading up to the soft opening industry launch party of the studio space.
SUMMER SUNDAY FUNDAYS
As Pegasus Project PDX started growing into the wings of its own creation, the first step in the direction of creating a forward moving artist + music community here in the Portland Metro area, Creative Director, Joshua Wallace and his good friends, DJ Mostly Ghostly, DJ Midi Wizard, and the rest of the gang came togethers this summer on select Sundays to enjoy the sunshine in good company while enjoying a day filled with sweet beats + BBQ.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It all started when Randy Rapaport + Joshua “Sasquatch” Wallace met back in 2006 over a bright and consciously lit conversation, the spark being a synchronistic moment of realization of art being the common denominator in this working partnership. Soon there after, Mississippi May art exhibit was born 10 years ago.
Pegasus Project is dedicated to creating the social and ethological environment directed towards cosmic minded artists and creative persons who seek to share their own truths in order to contribute to the overall shift of the greater consciousness for the good of all humankind.
