Quirky Berkeley Book Release Party @North

Quirky Berkeley
August 1, 2016 - 7:00pm-9:00pm (ended)

Based on Tom Dalzell's blog of the same name, the new book Quirky Berkeley pays tribute to the boldly imaginative artwork on display in front of, on top of, and engulfing residents' houses all over our fair city. With full-color photographs and a pithy wit, Dalzell shares his discoveries of the unexpected: the giant orange on Spruce Street, a house shaped like a fish, bowling balls as lawn art, enormous dachshund sculptures, and the birdhouse pyramid on Sacramento, to name just a few of the oddities. 

Come join us at the North Branch for a special celebration not just of the release of this ode to eccentricity by Heyday Books, but all of the fantastic art, culture, and personality that makes Berkeley so unique!  This special after-hours reception will feature refreshments, comments by many of the artists featured in the book, a gallery of photos from the book on display, and fresh copies of the book for sale.
