6-8:30 pm: Art Making for All – Museum Lobby
Hands-on art making in celebration of the new special exhibition Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953–1966. These projects help visitors of all ages get up close and personal with the artistic process. Join our museum teaching artists to create an artwork of your own to take home.
6-8:45 pm: “Systemic” by Urbanauts (Sean Orlando and Rebar) – Kimball Education Gallery
Drainage, running water, steam, sewage treatment, pumping stations, fire-suppression systems, backflow-protection valves, emergency backup water supplies—many of these systems are hidden in plain sight behind closed doors, in basements, or beneath manhole covers that we have walked across countless times. In contemporary society we rely on these expansive engineered networks of steel, brass, cast iron, and PVC in fundamental ways that we sometimes take for granted. The careful observer detects evidence of these complex systems just below and beyond perception, seeing the “tip of the iceberg” of the massive network of infrastructure that is, for most people, out of sight and out of mind.
6:30-8:30 pm: Ed Ivey and the North Beach Jass Band – Wilsey Court
Celebrate hometown hero Richard Diebenkorn with a group of musicians inspired by Studio 13 Jass Band, the Dixieland jazz ensemble that included Diebenkorn contemporaries and Bay Area Figurative painters Elmer Bischoff and David Park. This classic early jazz/Dixieland combo features Ed Ivey on tuba, Carl Lunceford on banjo, Mike Rinata on trombone, Tom Griesser on clarinet, and others performing music that Studio 13 Jass Band performed, Turk Murphy pieces, and standards in the Jelly Roll Morton tradition.
7:15-8:15 pm: Special Richard Diebenkorn Lecture – Koret Auditorium
Gretchen Diebenkorn Grant, daughter of Richard Diebenkorn, will share her insights and thoughts on the life and art of her father. Her lecture will be introduced by Timothy Anglin Burgard, the Ednah Root Curator in Charge of American Art at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and co-curator of the exhibition Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953–1966.
