Rene Garcia Jr. is one of my favorite local artists (and not just because he's also a good friend of mine). He creates stunning, large scale portraits using glitter, suede, wood, and sand. He runs the I Love This World blog. And he recently silkscreened a batch of limited edition, gold and black Obama posters (like the one above) that are free for the taking.

You can grab one from the new Project One lounge in Portrero Hill (251 Rhode Island St.), where Rene also has an art show up through the weekend. But if they all get taken before you can get one of your own, we also have 10 to give away here for the first ten commenters who want one (although you have to be able to come pick yours up). Obama will make a great president (fingers crossed) but as artists like Rene -- and Shepard Fairey -- know, he also makes for some pretty cool works of art. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
