The artistic process-much like the scientific process-is a fundamental method of learning and discovery. Arts offer an open-ended process of investigation, imagination, and experimentation in which every artist has the potential to reinvent art practice anew. Tonight at After Dark, experience work from artists who use art as a tool to invigorate public spaces, evoke social consciousness, and encourage awareness. View two newly commissioned murals from Bay Area artists Mark Harris and Bianca Marie Rivera and learn more about individual artists’ creation processes-and the ways in which artworks can be used as powerful tools for prompting meaningful change.
Please note: Food and drinks will be available to purchase in our Seaglass Restaurant and enjoy there or outdoors in Gallery 5 during After Dark.
