36,000-square-foot ad hoc street art museum

Big event Saturday night only! SFist has the details:

We mentioned it last week, but now that the location and details of Endless Canvas’ 36,000-square-foot ad hoc street art museum have been revealed, the event will make a rad addition to your weekend plans. The massive, three-story warehouse with murals by over 80 west coast graffiti artists will throw open its doors tomorrow evening in Berkeley.

The Carbon Warehouse is located in the old Flint Ink building (1350 4th Street) in Berkeley. The event itself is free and open to all ages. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event runs until they shut the whole thing down at Midnight.

Read on for more info and a video preview. (Swampy’s in on this; hopefully this event is even a fraction as good as that sick Swampy show last year, seen above.)

Also, here’s an important little notice from the event website:

ATTN WRITTERS: Thank you for not tagging the porta-potties, lights, gerenators, trucks or other rented equipment as Endless Canvas will be held liable and we want to be able to keep doing these events in the future.  Also, please don’t tag up the buildings across the street around the night of the opening so that the event doesn’t get shut down.  You know we’re pro-graffiti but please don’t side bust or blow up the spot.  THANK YOU!!!

    Classic – they have to tell everyone not to tag because they are doing something legitimate.

    No Graffiti near our Graffiti museum, please.

    Now the shoe is on the other foot.

    Lesson learned, when you tag peoples shit – they have to pay to fix or replace it. Ironic that a bunch of graffiti writers want themselves to be the exception.

    Everyone who has paid to remove graffiti should go tag the shit out of everything.
