Open for Making, A Residency for Creativity, 2009
Open for Making was an public art residency program that was inspired by my trip to The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada where I met with Paul Butler, Director of the Creative Residency Reverse Pedagogy at Banff in November, 2008. Once back home in San Francisco, I designed a residency program that would take place at Triple Base Gallery every Saturday for five weeks. The goal of these residency was to create an inspiring and productive environment for creative thinking – even if only for one day.
Each day was organized with varied programs and special guests from the community. This innovative residency program was molded from art school, working directly with practicing artists, embracing new fields of study and by examining alternative teaching models.
Open for Business, 2008
This exhibition was designed to activate Triple Base gallery with alternative art commerce. A weekly rotation of artist booths was designed by fourteen contemporary artists and creative inventors. Each provided an offering of goods, services or information. I worked closely with triple base artists that were already working with public as part of their art practice. The set-up facilitated an active space for exchange and social interaction, allowing the artists to highlight their influences or endeavors outside of their regular visual art practice. Each week (Thursday through Sunday) various artists or artist groups manned their custom-designed booths and conducted projects that engaged the public.
Artists: Jesse Schlesinger and Jerome Waag
The Art of Change: The Influence of Rock Music and Art on Social Change San Francisco City Hall, 2009
As part of the ongoing Art at City Hall program, I worked for the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery to present an exclusive multi-media exhibition featuring iconic photography, rock and roll poster art, and live music memorabilia. Wolfgang’s Vault is the world’s largest collection of live concert recordings and music memorabilia, which includes the vast archive of Bay Area music promoter Bill Graham. The San Francisco Bay Area has long been a hotbed for social activism and inventive musical performances and the materials included in this exhibition reveal the stories that have both contributed to and documented significant social changes of the past five decades.
I am very fortunate to have worked closely on solo shows with Kyle Mock, Rachel Kaye, Serena Cole, Elyse Mallouk, Jay Nelson, Hilary Pecis, Elaine Buckholtz, Alexander Kori Girard, Elisheva Biernoff, Peter Scherrer, Christine Shields, Suzanne Husky, Tara Lisa Foley, Beth Cook, Michelle Blade, Eleanor Kent, and Todd Bura.Read More
