malbon Brothers Farms brings the Scion Dashboard Gallery Interactive Experience
to San Francisco with Zenith Media and ATTIK
-Four Weeks of Rotating Art Shows Curated by Street Artists like Big Foot, Shawn Barber, Norm (AWR/MSK) and Ricardo Richey-

San Francisco, CA (April 11, 2006) – This April, malbon Bros. Farms (mBF), in conjunction with Zenith Media and ATTIK, puts together the ultimate Scion interactive experience where the public will have access to an epicenter of music, art and self-expression with the Scion Dashboard. With Dashboard set to launch at 580 Hayes St., the gallery will employ weekly rotating art shows, curated by a select group of the most sought after street artists, beginning with a huge launch on April 22 to its conclusion in May. mBF handpicked the curators, who include - Week One - Big Foot, Week Two - Shawn Barber, Week Three - Norm (AWR/MSK) and Week Four - Ricardo Richey in the Scion Dashboard space, one can relax and create while listening to the sounds of some of San Francisco’s hottest and world-renowned DJs, including Psycho Les and DJ Klever.

“Scion is thrilled to showcase and support local emerging talent in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley district during the Scion Dashboard,” said Andrea Lim, Scion Advertising/Media Manager. “We are also very excited to be teaming up with mBF on yet, what we believe, another successful project.”

The Hayes Valley district is an important cultural and creative hub in San Francisco, and so mBF knew that the area would be the natural location for the Scion Dashboard Gallery. The public is welcome to check out the Dashboard weekdays from 12 PM through 8 PM and Saturdays from 12 PM to 4 PM through the event’s duration. The space will allow visitors to walk away with a true interaction with the Scion Brand by customizing their own Scion, customizing exclusive Scion branded apparel and winning artwork produced by local artists and writers. The weekly curators, artists and DJs will have the opportunity to remove a panel from the “wall of fame,” personalize it and display it for all to view. In addition, uber cool tastemakers and trendsetters alike will gather one night of each week at an exclusive invite only event series that commences April 22. The exterior of the space will display “mural invitations” painted by the four chosen Dashboard ‘curators’ and their crews. These invitations will highlight the curator’s work and provide insight into their particular artistic vision. Consumers will have a one of a kind opportunity to watch the gallery’s collection grow before their very eyes as each week a different curator and his crew builds out the area surrounding the Scion Dashboard Logo.

mBF has worked to create the success of the Scion brand with a culture extending beyond the automobile industry, into the fashion, music and art worlds. With the creation of the Scion Dashboard Gallery, mBF has positioned Scion as one of the pillars of cutting edge culture.
