Art talk set at di Rosa
KQED and di Rosa come together again to celebrate the art and artists of the Bay Area by hosting lectures with artists from the di Rosa collection that have also been featured on KQED's popular art series "Spark." The next lecture is Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 7 p.m. featuring Sandow Birk.
Birk is well known for embarking on expansive, multi-media projects that deal with contemporary social issues such as inner city violence, graffiti, politics, war and prisons, as well as surfing and skateboarding. Birk's first film project was "In Smog and Thunder," a mockumentary inspired by Ken Burns' marathon 11-hour film about the American Civil War. In Birk's version, Los Angeles and San Francisco engage in all-out war for control of the entire state of California. The di Rosa collection includes several paintings and mixed media sculptures from this series.
The lectures are free for educators and di Rosa docents; $5 for di Rosa members; $10 for general admission.
Reserve a spot by contacting email@example.com or call 226-5991, ext. 27.
The di Rosa Preserve is located at 5200 Carneros Highway.
