Print Public 2016-2017

Print Public Open House on March 11, 12-4pm

Kala Storytelling Night “Just Breathe” on March 23, 7-9pm – Submit your story! Deadline: March 9

Kala Gallery is proud to present Print Public, featuring new work by 2016-2017 Print Public Residency artists: Drew Cameron, Ramekon O’Arwisters, Mildred Howard, Marksearch (Sue Mark and Bruce Douglas), Kelly Ording and Jet Martinez, and Jenifer K Wofford.

Through Print Public programs, Kala provides opportunities for artists to work on interdisciplinary projects with digital or print media while animating public space, reaching new communities, building local partnerships, and deepening neighborhood ties. Join us for the Open House on Saturday, March 11, 12-4pm for more events, workshops and activities.

Print Public is supported, in part, by the James Irvine Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts Our Town program, California Arts Council’s Creative California Communities, and by UC Berkeley Chancellor’s Community Partnership Fund.

The first iteration of Print Public (2013-2015) launched with six artist/artist teams including Taro Hattori, Taraneh Hemami, Susan O’Malley, Sue Mark, Swell, and Imin Yeh, working along San Pablo Avenue to create a range of projects.
