Cut and Fold: An Exploration in Paper, Form and Light
Saturday, November 9, 2013
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This is an introductory course for all levels on constructing pop-ups and adding lights to them with paper based electronics. With simple cuts and folds we will learn to create intricate designs that play with light and shadow. We will emphasize these patterns by adding miniature LEDs with battery powered paper based circuitry and switches. Note: The LEDS we use are small so please bring your reading glasses if you wear them.

Asian Arts Initiative Pearl Street Block Party
A neighborhood arts festival
Saturday, September 28, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Culminating Community Feast starts at 5 p.m.
1200 block of Pearl Street in Chinatown North/ Callowhill

Asian Arts Initiative is excited to be planning the first ever Pearl Street Block Party, a neighborhood arts festival to celebrate the rich cultural diversity and artistic community of Chinatown North and Callowhill! The 1200 block of Pearl Street will come alive with a range of activities including a community furniture build of tables and chairs; artwork and featured performances by our Social Practice Lab artists in residence and other creative individuals; and a shared community feast to culminate the day!

The furniture build will be led by Oakland-based landscape architect and artist Walter Hood, who is helping us to imagine how the underutilized alleyway behind our building can be transformed into a space filled with art and life. At the community feast, we'll share the design concepts that he has created for Pearl Street based on community input collected this past spring and summer.
