I take it the nearest parking space would be even further then the bart station. It's only about a mile walk. I think I can hoof it, but walking with all those materials could be a problem. I take it oils are going to be used. Alot can go wrong with those messy, wet, smelly, amazing things.
Hey guys, I got more details from the organizers! here are some answers. Also if you need more details please ask:
@Hyskoa: Not sure what European one you’re talking about. We did one in Berlin last June
@KT: Please email email@example.com with any questions
@jpacer: We’ve negotiated some rate with hotels in the area, be sure to check the site, www.massiveblackworkshop.com in the next few days for details
@Raoul Duke: It’s probably about a 20 min walk from the Civic Center Bart station, good news is its all flat groundJ. It’s probably a $5-8 cab ride. The 27 Muni goes by Harrison and 7th, about a block away; and the 19 Muni stops at 8th and Brannan. Also there’s tons of parking around the area, I think there’s a garage at the Design Center a few blocks away.

"Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

Okay, Thanks Vyle. Well this question is probably not answerable at this time, but I wanted to know if the tickets will be sold out by mid October. Also, Is it okay if you don't plan on attending the portfolio review(I'm nowhere near the skill level to actually be hired right now.) I'm sorry for such stupid questions. EDIT: Sorry, I posted really late and didn't see the new posts. I'll e-mail my questions.
Vyle-thank you. I'll go ahead and bring my car on whatever day is best to bring materials. I'm actually looking forward to hoofing it there on the rest.
flake-I'm just running a material list in my head and preparing myself for murphies law and thinking about precautions to take. We've all had those terp/galkyd disasters where you wind up with spills and embearassing stains. It's also not such a good idea to bring a wet canvas on bart.
The organizers are telling me to point you to their FAQ area too in case you want a direct communication
@KT: don't be too affraid about having your portfolio reviewed too early, usually the professionals can help you even at an early level. It is hard to do so by email, but in a live situation that is much easier, so you should definitely use that occasion!
I have an awesome solution for parking! I do this all the time when I go to day shows at Slim's or the DNA. The Costco parking lot is free and open to the public. Costco is right around the corner from SOMA Arts. http://g.co/maps/cbfr4 The catch is that the Costco lot closes at 8, so if you park there you have to make sure to get it out before then. But still, free parking all day!
