" Joe & Me"
Oil on Canvas, 24x30 inches, Framed The inspiration for the painting was taken from an old photo taken on June 16, 1941 with Cleveland in Yankee Stadium. It was the eve before Joe DiMaggio made his 29th consecutive hit ti tie the Yankee streak. DiMaggio continued to hit in 56 consecutive games, a record that still stands today.
Using artistic license , Arata has placed Joe in the Joe DiMaggio
Playground, surrounded by North Beach kids and other
San Francisco baseball celebrities
This will be an only-in-North-Beach event where the old timers mix with the techie newcomers, where the young families mingle with the old families, where neighbors and friends of all stripes and leanings will gather to celebrate a common cause. We’ll meet at the fabulous Bimbo’s 365 Club, hosting the finest celebrations in North Beach since 1931.
