These days, we’re thinking hard about what it takes to make it as a local artist. What systems are in place, or might need to be, for the Bay Area to continue to serve as a beacon of cultural and artistic innovation, as well as a welcoming place for working artists to call home? We’ve partnered with our friends at The Progress to host a salon-style discussion with select, local Headlands Alumni to discuss these timely questions.
- Ana Teresa Fernández, visual/performance artist; The Fleishhacker Foundation Eureka Fellow, San Francisco Arts Commission Cultural Equity Awardee, and Headlands Tournesol Awardee
- Sean McFarland, photographer; SFMOMA SECA Awardee, The Fleishhacker Foundation Eureka Fellow, The Baum Foundation Awardee, and Kala Fellow
- Amara Tabor-Smith, dancer/choreographer; Creative Capital Awardee, The Kenneth Rainin Foundation Awardee, The Zellerbach Family Foundation Awardee, and The East Bay Community Foundation Awardee
- Lysley Tenorio, short story writer; Stanford University Wallace Stegner Fellow, NEA Creative Writing Fellow, and the Pushcart Prize Awardee
- Lindsey White, multi-disciplinary artist; SFMOMA SECA Awardee, Creative Work Fund Awardee, Alternative Exposure Awardee, and Kala Fellow
Moderater: Apsara DiQuinzio, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Phyllis C. Wattis MATRIX Curator, BAMPFA; Headlands’ Audience Engagement Committee Member
Expect a convivial and rich evening in both content and fare! The discussion will be accompanied by artfully prepared snacks envisioned by chefs & owners of The Progress, Nicole Krasinski and Stuart Brioza, with plenty of time to take in the artwork created for the restaurant’s unique Workshop space, and a chance to continue the conversation with fellow Headlands’ supporters.
Open to Headlands Breakthrough Supporters ($1,000) and above. If you have questions about your membership or would like to upgrade and join us for this unique event, contact Jen Ontiveros at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.331.2787 x33.
Presented in partnership with The Progress, 1525 Fillmore St, San Francisco, CA 94115. Please note: this event will be held in The Workshop event space, accessible only by stairs.
