The 2011 PROJECT: Commissions is a commissioning program supporting the creation of new works to be exhibited at Pro Arts and then off-site at Youth Uprising in East Oakland. Youth Uprising and Pro Arts are working together to support community development through youth leadership and the arts. Pro Arts makes a commitment to exhibiting new, risk-taking work, and important works by artists representing under-served populations and communities of color. The collaboration aims to expand audiences for critical art discourse in Oakland.
