  • Village Artist Corner Activation: Everyday Heroism

    Workshops & Activities, and part of Village Artist Corner Activations

    Jul 07

    1st Sunday of every month

    Free

    11 AM—3 PM

    Village Artist Corner (at the corner of Larkin and Fulton Streets)

    Each first Sunday activation we will explore and navigate a slice of the hero’s journey, with the participants in the role of hero in their own lives, to highlight the upcoming Awakening exhibition.

    About the Creatives:
    Alice Lee and Marie Applegate-Swanson are two local Bay Area creatives behind Together, Let’s Be ___________ .  This project is inspired by Dr. Philip Zimbardo and his Heroic Imagination Project, Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and the Asian Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition Awaken: A Tibetan Buddhist Journey Toward Enlightenment (Jan-April 2020), as curated by Jeff Durham. 

    Creative Director / Lead Artist Marie often finds herself amidst kids, scientists and creatives, oh my! Her participatory art installations dance in the middle of this venn diagram of perspectives. She hopes that Together, Let’s Be _________  will contribute toward a culture of emotional intelligence and prosocial behavior. In other words, remind people that we’re in it together! 

    Artist Alice Lee is a human being who cares about consciousness, community, and connection. She is also an artist. Born and raised in the SF Bay Area, she now works from her art studio in the Mission as an independent illustrator and muralist. Alice's goal with her large-scale installation work is to create immersive, warm, and accessible experiences that bring people closer to each other.  

    Special thanks to Allison Wyckoff and the Asian Art Museum for this continued exploration of creative compassion and connection at the Village Artist Corner.
