Baldocchi Projects has a dedicated mission to working with artistic communities—providing whatever support is needed in order to unlock, expand or amplify creative potential. We advocate for them so they have the ability to make their dreams a reality.  This photo depicts the after-party of opening night for René Yañez’s solo exhibition Into the Fade at The  Luggage Store Gallery.

Here he is surrounded by friends who huddled with and supported him through his courageous yet profoundly graceful battle with cancer.
