New Normal: Learning from the Past
to Move Forward Together
ArtSeed’s Annual Fine Arts Interactive Exhibition Preview Reception: 5-7 p.m., Thursday, November 4
ArtSeed’s current exhibition evolved from our previous annual show, seamlessly attempting to reflect on both years’ unimaginable events. Children and Veterans have worked with artists to pose questions and reveal the challenges and power of this moment. How can people of various political and cultural persuasions resolve conflict and grapple with environmental and political issues disproportionately affecting communities of color and the poor? Can art heal social and personal wounds? Are we not all creators?

Celebrating Three Weeks of the Fine Arts Summer Intensive!
ArtSeed is proud to have completed our annual immersive artmaking Intensive with two in-person locations at opposite ends of the city: ArtSeed’s Presidio WorkSpaces at Tides Converge, and at ArtSeed’s Hunters Point Shipyard studio. All-day online connections between these two sites brought both camps together for structured presentations and Activities. Participants studied with eight in-person instructors who were also accessible via Google Meet. Additionally, four remote presenters hosted “Field Trips” to Seattle, Washington; Frisco, Texas; plus Petaluma and Emeryville, CA! All this happened during weekdays, July 12 – 30, 2021, 9 am – 5 pm. Participants ages 9 and older largely worked one-on-one with teaching artists and adult volunteers to develop pieces for their individual portfolios and for several collaborative projects.

ArtSeed Statement: “I discovered ArtSeed through my internship at the CA Lawyers for the Arts, and my experience so far has been wonderful. I was able to meet artists from various backgrounds who have helped me grow. I was encouraged to experiment and think about art in ways that I hadn’t before.”
