Vertigo to host summer pop-up art show this weekend

The coffee house will feature the work of 10 local artists on Sat., July 1

On Sat., July 1, Vertigo Coffee Roasters in San Juan will host “Thunder Moon,” its summer pop-up art show.

Free and open to the public, the event runs from 3 to 8 p.m. and features 10 local artists. The artwork—ranging from prints to hand-crafted sunglasses—will be also available for purchase.

A wall decorated with painted vinyl records created by artists and Vertigo staff will be on display, too.

The coffee house’s art curator, Jarae Tanner, explained in an email to BenitoLink that this month’s art show includes a free, community bike ride (of the pedal variety) through the streets of the mission town. The ride begins at 5 p.m. at the San Juan cemetery located at 70 Monterey St. and finishes at Vertigo. Interested cyclists of all ages are welcome.

I’m a lifelong resident of San Benito County. I reside in Hollister with my wife, Brenda. I’m embarking on my 19th year at San Benito High School, where I teach world history and Mexican-American history. In addition, I'm moonlighting as a freelance journalist for BenitoLink. My passion is delving deeper into the nuances of the local, historical record, while including lesser-known stories of our past. My hope is that county residents will have a greater appreciation for the diversity and complexity of San Benito County, realizing that its uniqueness depends upon our responsibility as its stewards.
