Newly Reincarnated Bar Brings Art Culture to Hayward
October 1st, 2009
Hoping to bring a new beat to the Hayward community the Dirty Bird Lounge brings local and emerging artists to expose their work. The lounge is located at 29308 Mission Blvd Hayward, CA and the show runs from the 8th of October through the 31st of October. An opening reception will be held on the 8th of October from 6pm to 9pm in which the artist will be present. Works included are from Victor Salazar's, a CSU East Bay Alumni, Verses series.
The new bar/ lounge, formerly known as the Viper Lounge newly known as the Dirty Bird Lounge, has been serving cocktails for over 60 years and is proud to bring for the first time ever art exhibitions into the bar. “I want to bring more art into the community and maybe help Hayward become an art scene” says Aric Yeverino, owner of the lounge. “I live in Oakland and I've been surrounded by art constantly and I think there's a lot of artists that come from Hayward we need to see.” The bar also offers two freshly felted pool tables and an eclectic jukebox.
The current exhibiting artist, Victor Salazar, is showing his Verses series. The series is a set of paintings created to illustrate emotional instability through form. “The lounge is bringing something new to Hayward and it's nice to see an outlet for art other than just the Sun Gallery or the Arts Council Gallery” says Salazar. “It's also a great opportunity for artists in Hayward to get exposure in a place where everyday people go to.” Salazar has shown work in many places including Oakland and was part of the Oakland Art Murmur in October 2008.
