In 1992, George Gee and his wife Deborah Seaton opened Side Street Espresso, on G St. in downtown Anchorage. Soon the daily white boards for the cafe mirrored the intensity of contemporary American culture with social and political caricatures and commentary. Whereas George would erase each board at the end of the day, starting in 1997, he began to preserve the artwork, which resulted in the book, Flutters from Side Street: Volume One, Dry Erase Drawings, Social and Political Commentary, and Reflections From A Morning Walk To Work. The book is an amazing collection of dry erase drawings that highlight pieces of Anchorage and American history.
Everyone is encouraged to attend this event, meet George Gee, and learn about the life of an extraordinary human being.
