Please join the Fortnight Collective for a participatory art exhibit titled Imagine San Rafael, at the Youth In Arts Gallery. Fortnight has spent the last several years developing creative ideas for public space through ongoing community dialogue and public art events. Some of those ideas are featured in this show, including: an interactive city map where participants can locate their experiences in a shared space; a junk-modeling table where children of all ages can build their own San Rafael; a library of creative placemaking ideas; and a chance for visitors to play with prototypes for local public art. Through this playful kind of collective imagining, we hope to foster creative community dialogue in San Rafael.
Fortnight Collective is proud to be working on this exhibition in partnership with Creative San Rafael, a collaboration of local arts and business organizations dedicated to enriching and enlivening the area as an arts destination. Lead partners also include Youth in Arts, the City of San Rafael, the Business Improvement District, and Art Works Downtown. Funding for Creative San Rafael has been generously provided by the California Arts Council, the Marin Community Foundation, and the City of San Rafael. More information can be found at http://www.creativesanrafael.org.
Visitors are invited to attend the opening reception on Friday, December 12 from 5-8pm, or visit during gallery hours, Monday through Friday 10am – 5pm. Attendance is free of charge.
