A HUGE THANKS to everyone who stopped by YBCA on Thursday Sept. 19th and checked out our latest Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) installation! It was an amazing evening and an enormous success that allowed many people to participate and share their voice. Our live tweet piece, which invited people to say “I (emoticon) my community because…” drew in tweets from as far away as Mexico City and Argentina.
A HUGE THANKS also to Katya Min and the YBCA staff for hosting us, Art Hazelwood for creating such an amazing poster image, Jonathan Grover for creating such an innovative tweet piece, and Jessica Watson for helping us promote the project!

September’s YBCA: ConVerge program presents Chris Treggiari and Peter Foucault’s Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) project and its Mobile Screen Print Cart, an  interactive, neighborhood-generated social sculpture inspired by the design of a classic teardrop trailer that is towed behind a vintage Vespa scooter. The Mobile Screen Print Cart will explore the varied history of community posters in the Bay Area, while simultaneously giving the viewer a platform to create their own original, individual posters that will dispersed throughout the Bay Area. For this project MAP has collaborated with celebrated printmaker and educator Art  Hazelwood and invited local art blog SF Art Enthusiast to conduct on-site video interviews. For this event we are also collaborating with Brooklyn based artist Jonathan Grover who has created an interactive “Tweet” program allowing participants to get involved from anywhere around the world! Interactive performance pieces will take place throughout the evening inviting the public to become active participants in this multi-media event.
