Every week, Friday Nights at the de Young offers art-making activities to encourage everyone of all ages to tap into their creativity.
This week’s art project focuses storytelling and documentation as it relates to Janet Delaney’s use of the photograph as a method of sharing the landscape of a city in transition. We will design and assemble San Francisco Field Guides that are meant to be taken out into the city and used as a tool for individual reflection, documentation, and understanding.
DJ Lamont will be spinning music from the era of Janet Delaney’s photographs (1978–mid-1980s).
