The de Young's Artist Fellow Lexa Walsh is organizing an evening of music and film highlighting Oakland artists and musicians who regularly performed at the former Heinz Afterworld Lounge, which she created and booked in the early 1990s. The archives of this club were highlighted during her residency in the Kimball Education Gallery.

For Walsh's fellowship, Mapping the Archive, she is in the process of developing a process-oriented map and archive of remarkable and sometimes underrepresented Bay Area art projects, venues, and opportunities.
