The First California Bear Flag with Erik Bakke

From the Gallery press: Participants will take an Instructional on painting the original California “bad painting”--the first California Bear Flag. Those in the audience will be given material with which they can make their own versions. Particular attention will be given to the roughness of execution of the original flag and the “mistakes” it contained. Excerpts from Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo’s history of California will also be read (and other readings).

Special thanks to Elizabeth Bernstein and Carrie Hott of
