SOMARTS

The City of San Francisco's premier showcase for visual and performing arts, SOMARTS is a treemendous warehouse with galleries, installation spaces, classrooms, a theater and other showplaces. Home also to the administrative offices of Artspan, which produces the now world-renowned SF OPEN STUDIOS. I am a participating installation artist, returning this year for the annual DAY OF THE DEAD exhibition, a month-long, intercultural celebration of the (formerly just) Mexican holiday for honoring the dead in which alters are built for offerings and so forth. This year I'm a "principal artist" (my first time with that title! :-D), one of only 40 selected out of this year's record number of submissions, and for my theme I'm focussing on the Mayan calendar (which ends this year in 2012) and time pyramids, which reveal everything in stages that can only be realized if you get to the top, or if you see the schema (by coming to my show)- for more info follow @wiltonwoods on Twitter or visit my fine art blog- http://wiltonwoodsfineart.blogspot.com
