de Young Artist Studio

Artist Rosanna Raymond, a New Zealand-born Pacific Islander of Samoan descent, will choose treasures from the de Young's permanent collection as reference points for investigating museum space as a place for new art and art of the past. She will develop a performance piece, involving movement, costume, sound, and workds, that will become an installation with projections and reflections that enhance her work.
