About Side Street Projects
Currently based in Pasadena, Side Street Projects is an entirely mobile, artist-run organization that gives artists the ability and the means to support their creative endeavors. The artists at Side Street Projects are social entrepreneurs who work with communities to solve real-world problems. Side Street Projects share what they have learned to strengthen the field of artists who work with communities, schools, and institutions. Simply put, Side Street Projects teaches artists how to roll up their sleeves and do things themselves. Each year they serve 10,000 individual (adult) artists and over 4,000 children. 

About Woven Accents
Woven Accents is a fiercely independent rug company, located in a freestanding gallery on Melrose Avenue, across from the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California. Woven Accents actively engages in conversations and collaborations with contemporary artists and designers to explore the notion of rug as place, where rugs ground the idea of home, culture and comfort. Working closely with interior designers who treasure its distinctive curation of antique and vintage rugs, Woven also designs and sources contemporary heirloom pieces rooted in traditions inherited and evolved over time; rugs that carry memories and values from one generation to the next.
