Hosted by Runabout Goods, Second Hand Revival is a collective of craftspeople and designers—from apparel to collectibles—and this year Obi Kaufmann is joining the crew. To this event, Obi brings his number-one, best-selling California Field Atlas and his original, watercolor trail paintings. Although the event itself spans the whole weekend, Obi will be in attendance only on Sunday afternoon, February 11th, from noon to 5:00 p.m.

Free and open to the public.

Obi KaufmannGrowing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. For Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred field atlases to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at his desk in Oakland, posting @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media. His website is www.coyoteandthunder.com.
