what is a ‘proxart’?

May 11, 2009

we get asked about the name ‘proxart’ quite a bit.
where did it come from? what does it mean? etc?

so here’s the rundown; the skinny if you will.

proxart started in september of 2007.
it started out of the desire to see more (good) art in the santa clarita valley:
we know that there are a lot of artists in the city.
we know that most of the artists in the city feel the need to leave the city to find good art.
thus, this little experiment was born – er, grew wings, maybe.

the name itself?
well, it’s fairly self explanatory, but i’ll break it down into parts:
proximity = closeness; the state of being near as in distance, time, or relationship.
art = the products of human creativity

proxart = bringing creativity close… more or less.

but how do we do that?
well, this answer is also simple: with you.

we understand that proxart can’t bring art close to anyone without talented artists, like yourself, involved.
this proxart thing… it isn’t really about proxart… it’s about the art, and the artists.
proxart is simply a vehicle for us to try and bring a little bit of what we like about other cities, into our own.
and, like i said… we really can’t do that without you.

thanks for reading, and for being patient with us, while we try to figure this thing out.
we’ve got some good stuff coming up, and i can’t wait for you to see it – and be a part of it!

    I have been talking to Zach Hill about Proxart and how we might do a joint venture together? I am in the process of doing a Bluegrass Festival at Hart Park this Oct. 23rd.I wanted to find out if this might be something that your group might be interested in participating in? Please respond ASAP as I’m setting up meetings with the County of LA and City of SCV groups that will also be participating, Thanks Scott Sivley
