MIX II (2001)

Glen Park Elementary and Gateway Charter High School; Project conceived by Richard Olsen; This project was a continuation of the MIX 2000. It involved Gateway Charter High School, Glen Park Elementary and students of San Francisco Art Institute. The graduate students were assigned to classes under the direction of artist teachers Richard Olsen or Abner Nolan. The object was to bring artists together of a variety of ages for discussion and ultimately for creation of new works. There were projects that included outdoor sites, and collaborations between the older and younger students. As the first MIX had, it challenged the students of all ages to become familiar with each other’s worlds.
