> DESCRIPTION

New York-based artist group The Bruce High Quality Foundation (BHQF) will continue their national Teach 4 Amerika* tour with a public rally this Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30pm at the San Francisco Art Institute, located at 800 Chestnut Street in San Francisco, presented by the SFAI Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series. Inspired by the spectacle and energy of a political rally and featuring a multimedia presentation by BHQF, balloons, t-shirts, and music from a local marching band, the event is the next in a series of rallies and conversations that call for a rethinking of the current art education system. Teach 4 Amerika is a five-week, 11-city, coast-to-coast road trip, presented by Creative Time, that will cross state lines and institutional boundaries to inspire and enable local art students to define the future of their own educational experience.

Traveling the byways of America in a limousine painted as a school bus, BHQF will visit university art departments, art schools, art institutions, and alternative spaces across the nation. The national tour, which began in New York on March 29 with a kickoff rally at the Cooper Union, will continue through May 2 with a combination of dynamic public rallies and intimate conversations hosted by local partners in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Minneapolis/St Paul, Detroit, Denver, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland.
