Two weeks ago The Coachella Valley Art Scene & Epidemic Skateboard Shop presented
“There’s No Place Like Home”
at The CVAS Art Space inside Epidemic.
Featuring new work from two collaborating artists, Aaron Hansen and Rick Rodriguez.
Together the two artists invented a new craft; pairing found wood pieces from the desert and Instagram photos. Sounds interesting, right?!? The use of new technology with an old school craft really excited us and Epidemic Skateboard Shop, come the day of the show we realized the rest of the community was just as intrigued. The art show was a success. Many pieces sold and new ones will be circulating through the CVAS Art Space at Epidemic Skateboard Shop for the next couple months so make sure to stop by.
Below are a couple photos that Sarah of The Coachella Valley Art Scene took the night of. Check them out and make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to get a link to more photos and info about our next community art show.
Despite the heat, and the fact that it was dead in the middle of summer, the crowd was steady all night. Many pieces sold within the first hour of operation…
(please excuse date on photo, it’s a film camera from the 1990’s that still stamps the date)
Jessie and The Mangler. Just kidding, maybe he’s not The Mangler, but this man does look like an art goon.
Pop-up art walls inside Epidemic for extra space. Aaron and Rick also featured some of their friends’ work that used the same art process and materials as them. Really interesting to see everyone’s take on the process.

Instaprints sell for $30 at Epidemic Skateboard Shop.
Also featured at the show are these beautiful prints with a glass finish. You got to stop by the shop and check them out – really clean and desert-esque.
In typical Aaron Hansen fashion, he also brought his collection of aerosol pieces on found wood scraps from the desert.
DJ Alf Alpha was in the mix and set the mood just right…also, his hype girl was swaggin’ out with him.
Yogurt shop, Beach House, was in the house!! These guys sucker me to their yogurt shop every time…
Really sweet girls from La Quinta that came by. Look out for some artwork from them soon.
Kylie Knight in the house, 5000 Photography in the house two, and Alf Alpha in the house three.
Chris Sanchez and friends peacin’ out.
An odd girl in the desert….
