Thanks to everyone who stopped by Pop-Up Wrap Up! Was an amazing afternoon filled with interactive artmaking and a retrospective of MAP artists we worked with in 2010-11. Here are some pics from the event:
What: Mobile Arts Platform Pop-Up Wrap-Up Exhibition
Where: 934 Brannan St. (between 8th & 9th)
When: Sunday, August 14, 1-5PM
How much: Free admission
This free public event event marks the last in series of five collaborative exhibitions for 2010 – 2011. Pop-Up Wrap-Upcelebrates the many creative forces who contributed to and interacted with mobile participatory art structures conceived by lead artists Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari.
Pop-Up Wrap-Up features participatory art making activities as well as original artwork produced by collaborating local artists and by the public at four prior interactive pop-up exhibitions at SOMArts and the Potrero Hill Neighborhood, Northern California Cherry Blossom and Urban Youth Arts festivals.
The retrospective component of Pop-Up Wrap-Up includes a mural by Miranda Bergman and ergonomically innovative seating and structural installations by Furniture Design and Architecture MFA students from California College of the Arts.
In addition, Pop-Up Wrap-Up will display video and digital media content commissioned for and displayed at the neighborhood exhibitions: live poetry and performance from the Potrero Hill Neighborhood Festival, video combining historic and contemporary photographs of Potrero Hill by artist and Interim Director of Cultural Affairs JD Beltran, a short documentary about Bay Area murals by John Urquhart, Chris Treggiari and Peter Foucault, and video by Peter Foucault and Nico Crisafulli featuring street art from India & Berlin.
Pop-Up Wrap-Up revisits three participatory projects included in MAP’s installations at the Urban Youth Arts and Cherry Blossom festivals. Artist James Gregg will produce a new set of stencils for an interactive stencil art assembly station. Pop-Up Wrap-Up also resurrects the Yes, We Can ________ Positive Picketing Project, which allows any member of the public to create a mini- pronouncement of values by customizing a ready-made protest style sign with their own message. There will be a live reading of haiku submitted by the public at the Cherry Blossom festival, as well as an opportunity to submit new haiku.
