The Take Out Project

Wednesdays–Sundays, 1–5 pm
de Young | Kimball Education Gallery/Artist Studio

Artist Reception Saturday, February 28, 3–5 pm: Join us in celebrating the artist’s residency with light refreshments

Lauren Bartone's residency, A City in Maps, will focus on how San Francisco, Golden Gate Park, and the de Young Museum can be represented through a repurposing of discarded paper trash. With this found material, she will produce an experimental map of the museum's surroundings that is not necessarily geographically accurate, but reveals something about the diverse and layered social experience of its users. Visual imagery on the map will reference specific sites (and art objects) in the museum, as well as sites around the city and beyond, revealed in a visitor’s contribution. Visual conventions from mapmaking (linear boundaries, arrows, compasses) will help orient the viewer to a subjective sense of space, and handpainted and collaged samples of text borrowed from visitors’ maps and dialogue will provide the basis for viewers to make interpretations and connections. Visitors are encouraged to contribute to the map, make their own experimental maps, and view other examples of the artist's work.

Lauren Bartone is an artist and educator based in San Rafael, California. Her work is grounded in an interdisciplinary balance of painting, collective dialogue, and community work. Undergraduate studies at Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence, Italy and UCLA, as well as a graduate work in both education (MA, Education, UC Berkeley) and the visual arts (MFA, Visual Art, Vermont College of Fine Art) have allowed her to pursue her passions. Lauren has worked in various community programs, participated in residencies such as the Kala Art Institute and Art Works Downtown in San Rafael, and received grants including a Marin Arts Council Career Grant, the VCFA Levin/Lutz Award, and the Pirkle Jones Foundation Artist Support Grant. Since 2011 she has collaborated with the Fortnight Collective. Most recently, her work has considered social patterns and divisions as they pertain to labor and daily life in her community.

It's been a long month and my brain is getting sluggish. Fortunately there were many people I liked around today.

Another magical foggy day. This time with tomatoes and raspberries. Well, that and my first official day without Mr. Horse. I knew it was going to be difficult so I brought fruit. Fruit and Knopfler and Clapton... I also had Intern Extrordinaire Mlle. Megan. Bob the sitting ball was there too. Life could have been harder. Still... even with all of that and the buffalo hunt on the wall...

On June 18th, during the Cultural Encounters evening event, I sat down with current artist-in-residence, Michael Horse, to find out more about his background and artistic influences. Born near Tucson, Horse is of Yaqui, Mescalero Apache, Zuni, European, and Hispanic descent and comes from an artistically talented family of jewelers, potters, and painters.

Today had both frenetic and soothing aspects. I had breakfast with one of our amazing poets on the bill for Friday: devorah major, poet laureate of San Francisco emerita, amazing performer and above all friend. We ate frittata in Hayes Valley before making our way to the museum. THE FOG IS HERE. It must be summer, eh? Everyone celebrate.
