Bright Young Minds offers an opportunity for children ages 8 to 12 to engage with art through a hands-on drawing/painting session based on the Almost Together exhibition.

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) offers an educational curriculum and teaching method which enables students to develop aesthetic and language literacy and critical thinking skills while giving teachers a powerful new technique they can utilize throughout their careers. VTS is also used widely in museum and art center contexts, informing both educational and curatorial practice.  

Event is free, and open to children ages 8-11.  Parents must be present during the event.

***********************************************************

Almost Together is a selection of works from 20 Bay Area artists chosen from over 250 submissions. Representing mediums from painting to drawing, video, photography, sculpture and performance, the eclectic exhibit takes you through a journey that is all at once whimsical, hopeful, compelling, nostalgic and  at moments  sad.

What started as a quest by the jurors to explore the relevance of physical gathering spaces today resulted in a collection of works exploring the pursuit and struggle to form authentic relationships in a variety of different settings, from local to global, ranging in place from the streets of Oakland during the Occupy movement to a fishing village in Africa.  A common thread in many of the works is a sense of isolation, an acknowledgement that connecting with one another in this day and age has become incredibly challenging.

Local multimedia artist Paul Taylor conceived one of the exhibit's three short video pieces, capturing a performance entitled Digital Trust Hike. His aim was to replace all of his senses with digital inputs as mediated through his smartphone while walking the length of Taylor Street in San Francisco. Wearing blinders that limited his view to the phone in his hand, his experiment conveys, in part, just how much we as a society have come to rely on digital tools rather than face-to-face contact to meet our needs.

A pop-up café entitled War Gastronomy: Recipes of Relocation is another of the jury's unique selections. The work is a cultural heritage project interpreted through a food cart, in what is artist Justin Hoover's pursuit to re-frame personal histories of dislocation as a result of conflict in a way that is easy to sharethrough cultural cuisine. A program featuring War Gastronomy's food cart concept will anchor the public events planned around this exhibit.

Almost Together includes work by 18 other artists, each exploring a different facet of communication and connection.  Taken as a whole, their works reveal a distinctly Bay Area perspective on society, humanity, and technology.
