This Holiday Season: Let's Support Collect.Give

Three years ago during the Christmas holidays, The entire proceeds for the sale of After the Birthday Party print was donated to the Guidance Center. Thank you to a wonderful organization headed by Kevin Miyazaki called Collect.Give made this endeavor possible. This year, I encourage friends, families and supporters to buy prints and help other fellow artists give back to the causes they believe in. And if you made the purchase in the month of December, receive a free mini print from Collect.Give's Instagram feed! Several of us took turns guest posting for @collectdotgive and Kevin picked 4 artists to send buyers as a holiday thank you. You could receive a mini print by Jon Horvath, Elizabeth Fleming, Barbara Ciurej or Stella Kalaw.

The Billboard is Up!

The billboard with the image Tito Phil's Chair from the Family Spaces series went up on the corner of Mission and 14th Street in San Francisco earlier this month. Thank you to The Arts at CIIS curator Deirdre Visser for making me a part of this project.

About the Billboard Project:

In 2013 The Arts at CIIS is reaching outside the walls of the school and into the streets. Our first site is the billboard on the east side of the CIIS Main Building, visible from the highly trafficked intersection of 10th and Mission Streets. Over the course of the year, we will feature the work of ten artists, both emerging and mid-career, starting with Wendel White, Cristina de Middel, and Glynnis Reed. This forum allows us to expand our audience while inserting art into a space typically used for advertising. The curatorial focus this year is on contemporary artists navigating ideas around landscape—a landscape of memory, an emotional landscape, or a landscape of collective history.
