Tiki Invasion Tonight!

Tonight (7-9 PM) we'll be hosting the release party for THE DVD OF TIKI, which will feature a screening of the film fully packed with everything that makes a Tiki-lover's heart go crazy. Documentary producer Jochen Hirschfeld's guerilla crew travelled the Pacific for 101 days and captured the true South Seas as well as its pop culture interpretation.

Viewers will get insight in the work of veteran and present day tiki artists: writers, musicians, painters, carvers, illustrators, and of course, bartenders.

Meet Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern author Sven A. Kirsten (who will also be on hand to sign copies of the DVD), and see Edgar Leetag's house in Moorea.

Mr. Hirschfeld will be hosting the event, and will not only be signing copies of the DVD, but willing to answer all of your probing questions about Tiki.

In preparation for this event, we've hung some Tiki-themed pieces in the Art Hallway, including Doug P'Gosh's "One Way Trip to the Tiki Grotto," and several of Brad Parker (aka Tiki Shark) one of a kind giclées on canvas from his recent and very successful "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" exhibition. 

We've also got a very small quantity (less than five as of this writing) of Brad's Tiki Cat giclée on paper prints, which were limited to 25 total. Any of the tiki art pieces purchased at this event can be taken home tonight, so be sure to ask a store manager for details.
