OB artist hosts “Buzzwords” art show at Artbox in Ocean Beach
If you drove through Ocean Beach today, chances are that you saw some interesting art work, such as cut-outs of people holding up signage for an art show this evening. The artist behind it is Richard James Yozamp, an artist who is hoping to make his mark while creating a fine art scene in Ocean Beach. The show called “Buzzwords” will take over the Artbox in Ocean Beach tonight, with free admission. Art sales and bar sales will be donated to the Ocean Beach Elementary School art program. There will also be live music provided by SanDollar. If you’re a creative, love art or don’t get enough art - this is one local event you’ll want to check out.
