I am SUPER excited that the SPARK episode, which was filmed in May, will be airing tonight, Wednesday July 25th @ 7:30 pm. Please watch it and give me some feedback. I admit that I am very self-conscious about watching myself on TV, so I probably will be waiting for everyone's feedback before watching the episode myself. It's an sensitive item for me, I have trouble reading or watching what others say about me. Eeek! The show will reair on Friday, July 27th @ 11:30 pm. Check for show schedules here.
After today, the video will be available on my page: click here to view.
Spark is about Bay Area artists and arts organizations, a weekly television show, an educational outreach program and a Web site. More than a showcase for art objects and the artists who make them, Spark takes the audience inside the creative process to witness the challenges, opportunities and rewards of making art. Also featured in this episode is my colleague, Julio Cesar Morales, who explores the confluence of Mexican and U.S. culture at the Galeria de la Raza.
Attention Educators: The segment also features my work in an Educator Guide of the Week. This
Educator Guide includes activities related to analyzing artwork that
supports social change and discusses the history of the Chicano Arts
Movement (El Movimiento).
