2016 Community Arts Program Field Trips

Posted on December 29, 2016

The Creativity Explored Community Arts Program provides groups of studio artists the opportunity to experience and participate in the Bay Area arts community. This month the studio artists visited many iconic art institutions like the: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Craft and Design, Pier 24, Minnesota Street Project, and Jack Fischer Gallery. Each group got to delve into the artworld and explore new exhibitions that are currently happening. 

Field Trip 1:
Minnesota Street Project

Instructor Hannah Lilly, brought studio artists, Joseph “JD” Green and Joseph Omolayole to the Minnesota Street Project where they got a special tour by CE volunteer, Juliana who works at Jack Fischer gallery. During their field trip JD and Joseph got to see works by artists like Agelio Batle (Ash Dancer) and Danny Rozin (Wooden Mirror).

Field Trip 2:
Museum of Craft and Design

A second group of studio artists visited the Museum of Craft and Design and the Minnesota Street Projects including Brian Hayes, Joseph Omolayole, JD Green, and Vincent Jackson. One highlight of the field trip was Anja Ulfeldt’s interactive, sound-based installation Domestic Infrastructure #2. Another captivating installation was Chris Eckert and John Green’s Mixed Messages peice made up of 24 telegraph machines transferring clicks of Morse code from a live Twitter feed. JD Green mentioned that the Anja Ulfeldt piece was, “really fun to interact with." 

Field Trip 4:
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Studio artists, Emma Reyes, Ian Adams, Joseph Omolayole, and studio intern, Anna got to experience the largest modern art museum in America, the newly renovated SFMOMA. This group got to view iconic works made by master-artists like Chuck Close and Joan Mitchell. Pictured below is Emma Reyes staring with awe at the sheer magnificence of Joan Mitchell’s painting. 

Field Trip 3:
Pier 24 Photography
Studio Artists, Corine Raper, Joseph Omolayole and Emma Reyes had an exciting day at Pier 24,  a non-profit photography museum located on the coast of San Francisco. This extraordinary place is 20,000 square feet and only takes 30 visitors at a time. The current exhibition, Collected, celebrates 150 years of Bay Area photography and brings together photographs from the Pilara Foundation and other Bay Area collections. Studio Artist, Joseph Omolayole, really gravitated to Pier 24, he found the scale of building was freeing, which allowed him along with his fellow studio mates room to intimately explore and experience the installations. He really liked the diversity of the photographs featured in the "Collected" exhibition. He was really moved by the single-room, photographic installation, The Last Supper: Acts of God, 1999/2012 by Hiroshi Sugimoto. According to Joseph, “ the dimensions were so large that you could see the pixels.” He also took interest in Erica Deeman’s black and white female silhouette portraits, where he anaylzed that, “there were women made up of many shapes that represented women of different ethnicities.”  After the group visited the exhibition they sat by the Ferry building and basked in the fresh air. They all got back from their trip early so they decided to get hot chocolates from Maxfield’s. Instructor, Hannah Lilly said, “that it was a really nice day and special that everyone shared with one another.”
