Ricardo Richey with Evan Bissell, Ana Teresa Fernandez, Chad Hasegawa, Favianna Rodriguez and Eric Staller
Motion Graphics: In and Beyond the Street looks at street art and the practice underlying social engagement and artistic work in the public sphere. The exhibition is part of a larger project supported in part by the Creative Work Fund and the MAP Fund that includes community collaborations, youth workshops, and street performances with Intersection’s resident companies Campo Santo and Felonious. Work from related youth arts workshops will also be on display during the opening reception.
OPENING PARTY: Wednesday June 13, 7-9pm, FREE
Join artists, activists, changemakers, and urbanists for a celebration of street culture. This evening includes the public launch and tour of the Urban Trailblazing project – an Intersection/PlaceWorks collaboration with The Luggage Store illuminating the natural trailheads in our diverse neighborhood. This evening includes tours of neighborhood pop up and temporary public art projects.
SPECIAL VIP SCREENING: Works from The Mobile Media Project, Wednesday June 13, 6-7pm, RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a very special sneak preview of the exhibition and a screening of work from The Mobile Media Project – a project of Triangle Lab, a joint program of Intersection and Cal Shakes, in collaboration with TILT, City Crossroads, and Youth Uprising. We offered a free mobile media production workshop for 12 San Francisco and 12 Oakland youth and invited them to produce videos about issues most pressing in their lives. This private screening is for Intersection Members only. Not yet a Member? Join when you RSVP to email@example.com
