Jack Spade for Theaster Gates – Armory Bag

Here’s another limited edition offering for the day, this time from Jack Spade, who teamed up with artist and “cultural planner” Theaster Gates for a limited edition canvas bag dipped in black latex that celebrates the 2012 Armory Show. Proceeds from the sale of the tote go toward Gate’s Rebuild Foundation which turns old buildings nationwide into community art spaces.

We dig the charity and the color and material contrast on the bag, but do wish it didn’t look so much like something we got for donating to a charity (read: too much labeling). See how much better it is left alone? Though, to be fair, Gate’s acronym A.N.N.A.P. (Association of Named Negro American Potters) is pretty legit. A good idea and an even better cause. Pick one up here for $250 (probably a write-off).
