Project Description

As part of their Alumni Artist Return Visit in Summer 2012, frequent collaborators Jeanne Finley (AIR ’05 – CA) and Mel Day will complete the two-channel experimental piece “Fat Chance,” based on a shipwreck on the shores of Headlands’ Rodeo Beach. The final installation is slated for exhibition at Patricia Sweetow Gallery, SF. They will also commence work on a new Palo Alto Art Center commission, “Acoustic Threshold,” working in collaboration with many community groups.

The Alumni New Works program awards project-based, month-long return residencies to six noteworthy alumni each year. To enhance the impact of the award, Headlands has partnered with the crowdfunding platform USA Projects to provide these artists with access to additional funds.
