When: Saturday, July 23, 2011 1PM-5PM
Where: Potrero Del Sol/La Raza Skate Park (near entrance on 25th & San Bruno)
Cost: Free admission!
The special temporary exhibit will focus on urban art forms and will include murals by Miranda Bergman, video slideshows of murals from around the world by Nico Crisafulli, interactive stencil at production by James Gregg, participatory mural painting by Nicole McClure, collaborative video documenting local murals by Peter Foucault, Chris Treggiari, and John Urquhart, a crowd-sourced street art slideshow, the “Yes, we can ________” Positive Picketing Project, pop-up exhibition seating and structural installations by CCA Furniture Design and Architecture MFA students.
The Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) is comprised of two large-scale, interactive sculptures that are “activated” by a mobile exhibitions program. MAP brings together Peter Foucault’s Fal-Core Van and Chris Treggiari’s Mobile Store and appears in locations throughout the Bay Area. MAP is presented in collaboration with SOMArts and supported by a grant from the Creative Work Fund. MAP programming in 2010-11 will include a series of five “pop-up” exhibitions.
