Stopped by Madrone Art Bar tonight to support my friend Willy Owens and his new art installation "Portrait of America".  His company Magnolia Photobooth Co. launched a Kickstarter back in 2011 to fix up an old Westfalia van and  customized it with a custom free photo booth inside. The project got backed and Willy drove for 101 days though out the United State stopping at tons of cities. The installation shows his route and a bunch of photos that were taken along the way. I'm so envious that he got to see all the states. Definetly worth stopping by during the day to check out.

You can also see the works of artist Brent Thorne in their front window installation. I'm not much of a photographer, but have always enjoyed the double exposure effect. This is my accidental attempt.

Not the best picture, but this is the main wall of "The Portrait of America" wall installation. There's a routed map of the USA with the route Willy took and all the places he stopped along the way. It definitely needs some closer inspection. Every photo tells a story. You can also help support the project by purchasing a book at the bar ($20) or here.
