Recap of the Cannabis Show @ Infinity Room!

On January 28th, Paul Stewart and Over the Edge Gallery kicked off the year with the Cannabis Art Show which was located at the infamous Infinity Room in conjunction with Delicious Pizza located at 5413 West Adams Blvd. Los Angeles Califas.

Paul Stewart  partnered up with major Cannabis companies in the industry to bring to the public a massive line up of artists, Graffiti artists and special DJ appearances.  Along this collaboration show featured a heavy hitter artist line up with OG Slick, Michael Miller, Eric “Cre8” Walker, Keo, Lauralee Benjamin, Petal, Jennifer Korsen, Mr. Trixter, Sanecorner, Somehoodlum, Adria Cruel, Xistheweapon, Style One, WizRok, Gas, Sebastien Walker, The MadTwiinz, Phever, Bihno, Antonio and Isaac Pelayo.

This was an excited event for me as it was my first time working along with OG Paul Stewart, coming up with a fresh Cannabis theme along the beautiful and talented Tasha Nguyen who was in charge of all the DOPE vendors. If you attended this event then you all agree with me that the dopest part of the event was walking thru the back of the Infinity Room to the spot of vendors such as TGD, PotRocks, Legion of Bloom, Stonedgamers which was a popular hit with the public that night! It was a surreal experience to see all the Cannabis themed vendors, pastries, drinks, video games, bong hits, and dope vinyl records while listening to fresh DJ’s throughout the night; the final thought: Oh shit, this is really happening in Cali, Smoke Up!

Big Ups to our Fresh Los Angeles Hip Hop Heads, Cannabis Vendors, Artists, the Sponsors PBR, photographer E5D Zine for some of these great moments captured. Shout out to my fam from Cholos Try, Scar and Irene, thank you guys for always coming thru to show love and support. Here’s to more nights Up in Smoke, Tunes, Arte and Good People. Waddup Sista HailStorm, Petal, Gas, Wizrok, OG Cre8, Lea, My Mija Tatyana Ali,Korsen who stole the space in the Infinity Room with her massive Cannabis Art Piece which was used throughout the night as a backdrop.

Visiting St. Charles Parochial School in San Carlos Apache Rez with Sister Ruth

On November 13, 2016 I had the honor to walk thru the doors of the Saint Charles Parochial School which is located in San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona. First of all, I want to thank artist Paul Daniel for allowing to be a part of your journey; this place changed my life forever.

I must admit that this photo gallery is precious to me, it is a great deal to be sharing with you. It took me a month to dwell on whether I wanted to keep this marvelous experience to myself or share it with the world as I had promised. But there are moments like this that do need to be shared, to give others a new perspective on the importance of Life, helping others and allowing strangers to inspire and teach you new ways. Openly absorbing the beauty around us.

Much Love & Respect,

Monica Smiles Tobon

History of Saint Charles Parochial School in the San Carlos Apache Reservation, Arizona

St. Charles School, located on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation was opened in September 1965. The first generation Catholics who attended St. John’s Indian Boarding School requested that a Catholic school be built on the reservation so that their children and subsequent generations would have the opportunity to learn about the Catholic faith without leaving the reservation and losing their Apache culture.
