KALEID Gallery presents:

89.7 FM KFJC 50th Anniversary Art Show: BLOWING MINDS SINCE 1959

A retrospective of the Art & Culture of KFJC including works from KFJC’s 50th Anniversary Art & Logo Contest and a Silent Auction of DJ art.

Since its inception KFJC has challenged the Bay Area’s radio waves. 2009 marks fifty years of operation for KFJC, and naturally we wanted to show our support to our listenership. Our volunteer staff pushed beyond its’ alternative and eclectic programming by hosting a 50th Anniversary Art & Logo Contest this summer.

Every year we hand select different artists to create our Artist T Shirt and Girlie Shirt designs that become our gifts during our fundraiser season. The contest provided an opportunity to connect our listeners with another side of KFJC that they have become familiar with through their support. The contest was open to the public and included three submission categories: mixed media, artist t-shirt, & logo.

We are proud of all the submissions that arrived, many of which were from listeners online, including international submissions from Australia and New Zealand.


Our grand prize winners received cash prizes of $250 to First Place winner, Andrew Goldfarb, who contributed a colorful piece titled “Wave of the Future”


$150 awarded to Rosalind Schell won Second Place with her “Path Logo” pulling from the simple aesthetic that KFJC has used in it’s past logos.


And $100 to Third Place winner, Gordon De Los Santos for his work “KFJC T Shirt”

These winning art works will be exhibited along side past artist contributions. Previous KFJC themed works from Niagara, Sunny Buick, Arik Roper, Emek, Strk3, Mike King, Webster Colcord, Plastic Crimewave, Mike Zorn, Mike Davis, Frances Marin, Chris Reccardi, Robert Williams, and GAMA-GO! will be featured. KFJC DJs will be participating in a Silent Auction of unique works during the opening night to benefit KFJC.

Artists’ Reception: First Friday September 4th, 7-9pm
(This event is part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS monthly art walk in downtown San Jose’s SoFA District.)

Exhibit on view through September 25, 2009
