Venue
Creativity Explored

Location
3245 Sixteenth Street (at Guerrero)

Before INK closes, come to Creativity Explored to participate in a figure drawing event related to the art of tattoos.

Creativity Explored is collaborating with Dr. Sketchy's for this special, one-night figure drawing event titled Running Out of INK! Come and enjoy a night of drinks, drawing, and INK. Sketch from a live and lively tattooed model (but do remember to bring your own drawing supplies).

We will also hold a drawing to give away a free professional tattoo, courtesy of Black Heart Tattoo, and a $50 gift certificate from Body Manipulations.

Running Out of INK is a donation-based event, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Bay Area Now 7 Opening Night Party

July 18, 2014
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Venue
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Location
701 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103


Creativity Explored artists Christina Marie Fong, Anthony Gomez, and Marilyn Wong to be featured in YBCA's Bay Area Now 7 exhibition.

Through the work of artists who capture the spirit of "now," YBCA's signature triennial, Bay Area Now 7, brings to life current perspectives for both this art center and the regional art scene. In its seventh edition, BAN7 is experimenting with a new approach to curating that highlights collaborations with our region's artists and arts organizations and pushes beyond presentation toward a multidisciplinary celebration of the diversity of artistic practices in the Bay Area.

BAN7's core idea is to decentralize the curatorial process, and centralize the public presentation of some of the most exciting artistic voices in the region today.

During the VIP Reception (Invite Only), musicians Shamelle Roberson, Yetunde Olagbaju, and Julia Litman-Cleper will perform a short set of songs with lyrics entirely penned by Creativity Explored artists, while artist Christina Marie Fong from Creativity Explored’s group exhibition Next Big Thing will conduct a portrait session for visitors in her installation.

Way Out West

7:00 pm to 11:00 pm

Venue
Heron Arts

Location
7 Heron Street, San Francisco, CA 94103


Three Creativity Explored artists (Andrew LiJohn Patrick McKenzie, and Kate Thompson) are included in The Art City Project's first public art exhibition,Way Out West.

The exhibition will take over outdoor advertising spaces in San Francisco’s Inner Mission to turn the neighborhood into a public art gallery for six weeks. The Art City Project repurposes advertising space to produce contemporary art installations that transform public spaces. Way Out West is the pilot experience, purposefully launching in a city with a rich history of acceptance and tolerance for new and provocative ideas.

Curated by Tova Lobatz and Jenny Sharaf, the exhibition will span billboards, transit shelters, and bus takeovers by artists exploring the role of art in public spaces and new ways of embedding art in daily life.

The reception for Way Out West will be held at Heron Arts on July 17 from 7pm to 11pm, where original works and limited edition prints will be available for sale. The event is open to the public and walking distance from the artwork in Way Out West. All proceeds from ticket sales will support public art through the Art City Project and its fiscal sponsor, Intersection for the Arts.

Featured artists: Andrew LiJohn Patrick McKenzie, and Kate Thompson.
