The Story of Gregangelo Museum
Gregangelo, the visionary and artistic director of Velocity Arts & Entertainment and Velocity Circus, is a third-generation San Franciscan of Lebanese and Mexican descent who was exposed to a rich array of arts and culture at an early age. He is a graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts, and has extensive training in both multi- disciplinary visual and performing arts. Gregangelo’s signature act, the Whirling Circus Dervish, has gained international recognition from a spectrum of audiences.
The Gregangelo Museum is a San Francisco house that has been transformed into a collection of 22 fantastical art installation rooms created by Gregangelo & Velocity Circus. It is an Oasis of color, texture, mystery, inspiration, wonder, laughter and many emotions. Fusing arts, sciences, and mysticism-each opulent room represents different times of day and culminates in a fantastic 9 chamber labyrinth which takes the viewer on a sensational journey through the path of life, beyond, and returning to a bitter sweet reality.
It is a place that we are told “defies description” and has to be experienced by each individual.
Gregangelo, inspired by sacred places from ancient, contemporary, and possible future world cultures, set out on an odyssey of artistic expression that continues to envelop his work… The structure itself became Gregangelo’s canvas, and as his mind became unleashed, so followed his art…
Over twenty five years of Gregangelo & Velocity Circus’ artists dedicated labor and unframed creativity culminate in the present state of the perpetually growing museum. The intricate surfaces of the architectural walls, floors, ceilings, furnishings, textiles, elaborate costumes, objects of art, special effects, optical illusions, engineering, and theatrical lighting all come together to form a multitude of wildly imaginative and entertaining 3d environments and stories.
So leave your reality at the door and ride on the wings of imagination as you enter…
