Susanna Peredo Swap never seems to do anything simple and her newest project for Vanguard Culture is no exception. ENVZN23 Urban Art Take Over is a one day arts festival but plans are to repeat it in 2024 during the World Design Capital SD/Tijuana year.  Numerous warehouses, industrial spaces, and other urban areas of the Commercial Street corridor in Logan Heights will host events.  This cross-border event will include live dance, puppetry, theatre and musical performances on warehouse loading docks, a fashion show by Fashion Week San Diego in an industrial storage lot, art installations with curated soundscapes by Tijuana-based multimedia artist MALU, a mini film festival inside a cross-fit gym, delicious food and drink by local vendors, and much more. ENVZN23 will respond to the urban landscape by integrating curated sound and theatrical lighting design throughout. ENVZN23 is produced in partnership with CoPlace.

The following photos were taken at the ENVzN23 Preview Foodie event where artists involved were paired with chefs, inspired with each other to create.  This is just a glimpse of the colorful event, with good food and happy people. ENVZN 23 Urban Art Takeover will occurs on Sept 2 and tickets are on sale now. 

By the way the Soap Factory is a venue you can rent for your events. We found a Hey Picasso Artist Loofa Soap on their site Love the tie in!
