Introduction of September Artists-in-Residence by Gregory Stock, Education Intern

Generally the de Young’s artist studio is the home of one artist and their process. Museum patrons can engage in a specific artist’s technique and area of expertise. For the month of September, four artists of the Kearny Street Workshop (www.kearnystreet.org <http://www.kearnystreet.org> ) transform the Kimball Education Gallery. Throughout the month, one to four artists will be involving the public in their different processes. There is the visual art of Julie Chang (www.juliewchang.com <http://www.juliewchang.com> ) and Ala Ebtekar (www.torandj.com <http://www.torandj.com> ), the science and poetry of Pireeni Sundaralingam (http://wordandviolin.com/pireeni) or the choreography of Erika Chong Shuch (www.espproject.org <http://www.espproject.org> ).  Come and check out the community projects that will unfold over the month and be a part of all the art disciplines. 

The Kearny Street Workshop is the oldest Asian American multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States. Specifically, the Kearny Street Workshop produces, presents and promotes art that empowers Asian Pacific American artists and communities.
