Yerba Buena Center for the Arts | 701 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103
At ConVerge, the after-work hours get infused with a big, loving dose of cutting edge art, innovative people, and community.
Thursday, July 19, enjoy an engaging evening with performance artist Jessica Tully who employs each performance as a vehicle for social change and action. Using her craft as a representation of civic leadership, the audience will witness Tully’s practice of activating the intersection of performance and the public realm. In conjunction with YBCA’s Occupy Bay Area exhibition, this ConVerge will feature a community participation and interaction through the marriage of art and activism as seen by the Occupy movements of the Bay Area. Help us to Occupy Everything and witness Tully’s vivid aesthetics, overlaying spectacle and synchronicity.
