It sure has been awhile since my last post. I’m here to tell you of a wonderful article that covered the SFMOMA Teen Mural project in the East Bay Express. It covers the project from start to finish, illustrating the evolution of the student’s artistic process and how their experiences helped shape the final piece. Take a few minutes and check it out here. It’s currently featured on the front page!
Just to remind you what the project was all about: SFMOMA commissioned renowned artist Kerry James Marshall to create two murals for the museum’s Haas Atrium, and in response fifteen teens from three Oakland high schools designed and produced a collaborative mural, to be installed in the skate park at DeFremery Park. Your can learn about the project in its entirety here.
Also, don’t forget to visit the exhibition chronicling the SFMOMA Teen Mural Project in the galleries of the Koret Visitor Education Center, on the second floor of SFMOMA, through October 18.
