In conjunction with the Alameda Arts Commission and as part of a countywide celebration during national arts education month, Art IS Education brings together Oakland neighbors: Rock Paper Scissors Collective, 21 Grand and Creative Growth Art Center to present a special event during Oakland Art Murmur. This event explores the power of youth and community-based art as well as the heroes in our lives and our art community. Creative Growth Art Center will feature postcard art, text based art and an interactive mail art project.
Also in the gallery a night of music performance featuring the solid rhythms and experimental practices of WOOM, and the beautiful, heartfelt rock n' roll of All Smiles, the solo project of Jim Fairchild of Modest Mouse. DJ set by DJ Disco Duck (aka Creative Growth artist Gerone Spruill).
