Double Exposure: Artists Panel led By Carla Williams

Sunday June 22, 2008

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Curator's Tour with Frank Mitchell - 3rd Floor Gallery

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm MoAD Salon

In conjunction with Double Exposure: African Americans Before and Behind the Camera join us for a dialogue in-the-round with a selection of local artists whose works are included in the exhibition. The focus of the discussion will be on technology, both its impact as a tool of creation as well as its use as a tool of self-promotion, publication, and mass communication. The Bay Area is home to leading technological companies, so it is fitting that the artists whose work is featured here will address the impact that technology has had on their work.

Reception immediately following conversation. Refreshments will be provided by Bar Bambino.

Seats are limited. You must RSVP for admittance to program.

MoAD Members $10

General Admission $15
