BIG THINGS is an Oakland-based art & culture blog, online shop, & series of events curated by Rebecca Goldschmidt. It’s a trifecta! We aim to inspire, support, and connect artists and art-loving individuals and communities around the world. BIG THINGS has had lots of fun with pop-up events, workshops & projects in The Bay Area, Portland, Chicago, Brooklyn, Berlin, Vienna, Istanbul, Athens & beyond.
BIG THINGS originated three years ago as BIG THINGS AHEAD, my personal blog featuring fun discoveries and photo essays about my life and projects. While traveling and getting inspired by more and more people on the verge of something BIG, I decided to chronicle their efforts and share them on the blog. In Fall of 2010, I decided to launch BIG THINGS, the SHOP, & host monthly events to help support all the people and ideas that I believe in.
So from my travels, trips to the library, late-night conversations and bouts of googling, I’d like to share my favorite things with you! Thanks for visiting, we hope you learn something new today. And don’t forget, we’re always looking for new ideas and we love to hear from you!
