The Better Block OKC was a fantastic event held on 7th and Hudson this weekend showing that a few empty buildings on an empty street can potentially be an economic and creative hot spot. Kristen Vails of the Plaza District and Allison Bailey of ShopCrawlr co-directed the event with the help of a couple dozen amazing volunteers. The event was a huge success and went to show that with a very small budget and a lot of hard work you can create a really amazing community from very little. Tree & Leaf had its hand in on the action, our own Tanner Frady was a featured artist painting some really great characters on the side of a Hudson street side building. After the event, we all hung out in an empty lot and watched the OKC Thunder playoff game. A great end to a great day. While our pictures feature the T&L chumps hanging out, they may not do the bulk of the event justice. My ramblings only feature a small portion of the event. For some great commentary and pictures of the event I suggest you check out WeHaveMotive and the thoughts of Steve Lackmeyer at OKC Central.
Hustling out free H2O to the passersby.
Tanner Frady was Thundering Up all weekend. He single-handedly won the game on Saturday night.
Look at this cool dude.
Two chumps, two Tree & Leaf shirts, two Tree and Leaf skatedecks, three panels of awesome artwork.
