Stand Tall III @ Old Crow was Awesome. 09/22/2012

So Saturday September 22nd, 2012 Terry Addison over at Old Crow opened the third installment of the "Stand Tall" series.  This group show has quickly become a very important happening each year for the Bay Area, specifically the East Bay Art Scene.  Last year it spanned two spaces and featured a live PA by Japanther.  This year it was much cleaner, simpler, with great attention to how the artists interacted, the overall layout and movement through the space, and wreaked of amazing, truly realized, well executed, beautiful visions from all 38 participants.  Barret Moore was there to document much of it, the Daily Californian ran a great little piece on it, and the turn out once again was phenomenal.  Japanther, even in their absence, was able to include a video of their shadow puppet play on the front of Old Crow during the opening.  David Polka, Ken Davis, Renos, Lauren Napalatino, Dana James, Christopher Burch, Kool Kid Kreyola, Spencer Keaton Cunningham, Dr. Sex, Apex, Chor Boogie, Tweens, and many many more made this an amazing happening!-John Felix Arnold III
