Exhibition continues through Saturday, February 25, 2017

Regular hours:

The San Francisco Arts Education Project explores the relationship between artist mentor and student artist in DIALOGUES. The exhibition will be the conversation of formal, material or conceptual elements found in the work of both the older and the younger artists. The work of SFArtsED artist mentors will be seen alongside work created by students in each artist’s residency in a San Francisco public school or in an SFArtsED after-school program. Who inspires whom? Is resonance reciprocal? 

Lori Starr, Executive Director of The Contemporary Jewish Museum, serves as guest curator.  “Artists and their students engage in dialogue, sometimes unspoken—through emotional connection, mood, and in the quiet of making the work,” Ms. Starr says. “The process of creating art together sparks imagination and risk-taking—for everyone.”
