From websites crashing to thousands of people camping out all over the world, I can't help but appreciate the good people behind Titan more for all the great things they did today. They pulled out all the stops in transforming Ronac Art Center's The Playground to Air Jordan heaven. Air Jordan XI Concord release, NBA 2K12 Tournament and Air Jordan exhibit all in one place? Now THAT'S something SPECIAL.
When this project was presented to me I knew right away that I wanted in. I was tasked to be the curator of the exhibit. Sounds simple? Not really. See, getting a group of "sneakerheads" to display their collections is easy but getting the RIGHT people to participate is difficult. Most of the collectors I know are low key and never pretentious, something that's rare in today's scene. So when I got the nod from people I personally handpicked, I couldn't help but get stoked for everybody involved. How many times can you actually say that you were part of an exhibit that was sanctioned by Nike and Titan?
To Mackie, Ryan, Mon, Toots, Hans, Jason, Carlo, Ali (who I have yet to meet) and most especially Garry... THANK YOU. It was an honor to be trusted to feature your prized collections.
Now let's go to the photos!
These framed Jordan posters are spiff! (Some will be up for auction soon)
