MAP Artist Residency at Pro Arts Gallery in September

Artists Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari (Mobile Arts Platform) in collaboration with photographer Victoria Mara Heilweil have begun their Studio Lab Residency at Pro Arts.

For their residency, they will be researching and producing the second episode of “Community Sourced,” which will feature a micro-portrait of the downtown Oakland neighborhood sourced from interviews and interactions with residents and businesses within a 5 block radius. Their initial outreach and scheduled interviews include Luan Stauss, the owner of Laurel Books; Annalee Allen, an Oakland historian; Jennifer Easton and Barbara Goldstein, talking about the BART art master plan; and the African American Museum and Archives on 14th Street. Each episode will result in a video and accompanying book, which will be exhibited at Pro Arts’ Project Space in October.

You can find Foucault, Treggiari and Heilweil conducting research, interviews and public engagements on Frank Ogawa plaza from 11:00am – 1:00pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays in September.  If you would like to be interviewed, please email info@proartsgallery.org to set up an appointment.
