Inspired by Alison Pebworth’s installation on view at the SFAC Main Gallery, attendees were invited to create a small-scale cabinet of wonders. Innards and Upwards was originally created while Pebworth was in residence at the Recology San Francisco Artist in Residence Program.
Renowned visual artist/designer/educator Jeremy Mende discussed his Grove Street installation with Amy Ress, SFAC Galleries Advisory Board member. A short, fun presentation was followed by Q & A with the artist about his practice and what went into creating his installation. The discussion delved into the general idea of urban art interventions.
As Advisory Board Members of the SFAC Galleries, Amy and Jenn collaborated with 826 Valencia to lead a summer camp youth workshop. 826 students explored interdisciplinary creative placemaking and community engagement, inspired by artists and designers who propose positive civic change in the SFAC Galleries' Urbanition exhibition.
