Local Voices: Season 2
Local Voices is a new podcast series from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco designed to celebrate art and Bay Area creativity. Local Voices highlights unique perspectives from Bay Area visual artists, musicians, scholars, community leaders, and thinkers aimed to reframe exhibitions and collections through relevant and local narratives. Through these diverse access points, we welcome the Bay Area community and beyond to engage in meaningful and inspiring narratives.
Local Voices: Teens Take on Art
The second season of Local Voices features nine Bay Area teens as they reflect and share their own perspectives on objects from the Museums’ permanent collections. Through the themes of Belief, Density, Emotion, Material, Power, and Storytelling, the teens converse with curators, scholars, artists, and community members as well as family and friends to gain new insights and information.
Episode 4: Thinking about Materials
Materials used in art can give us clues to the artist’s process, techniques, and ways of thinking.
