SOMArts Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Mobile Arts Platform (MAP), presents a one-day-only pop-up exhibition at the 15th Annual Urban Youth Arts Festival hosted by Precita Eyes on July 23, 2011. MAP: Urban Youth Arts Festival includes a curated selection of visual and media art in addition to hands-on experiences for all ages. MAP is free and open to the public between 1pm and 5pm on the 23rd. Potrero del Sol/La Raza Skate Park is located at 25th and Utah in San Francisco. Exhibitions and activities at MAP: Urban Youth Arts Festival include murals by Miranda Bergman, a digital slide-show of murals from around the world by Nico Crisafulli, interactive stencil art assembly with James Gregg, participatory mural painting by Nicole McClure, a video short documenting local murals by Peter Foucault, Chris Treggiari and John Urquhart, a crowd-sourced street art slide-show, and ergonomically innovative seating and structural installations by Furniture Design and Architecture MFA students from California College of the Arts. Additional participatory content includes the Yes, we can ________ Positive Picketing Project, which allows any member of the public to create a mini-pronouncement of values by customizing a ready-made protest style sign with their own message. All artwork produced at this event throughout the day, including the stencils, Pronouncement signs, and murals, will be instantaneously uploaded to a virtual gallery at http://www.somarts.org/precita.

This event marks the fourth in a series of five collaborative exhibitions with SOMArts Cultural Center for 2010-2011 made possible with support from the Creative Work Fund. This dynamic pop-up exhibition strategy is designed to increase arts participation at city fairs and to deepen community engagement through the arts.
