Paseo Artistico: Mission Pecha Kucha
Saturday, June 8
The Mission’s Free Art community stroll
The celebration of visual arts in the Mission continues for the second year featuring live demonstrations of visual art at participating venues on Calle 24 Latino Cultural District. Featuring presentations by Rio Yañez, Nancy Pili, Josue Rojas, Yolanda Lopez, Adrian Arias, Cece Carpio and special musical performance by Rafael Sarria y La Gente and many MORE!
All events and activities are FREE for all ages.
*Pecha Kucha* (Japanese: ぺちゃくちゃ) is an arts presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20-30 seconds each. The format, which keeps arts presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights. The Mission Pecha Kucha 2 will pay homage to the powerful legacy of visual arts in the Mission District of San Francisco, including its famous political murals and “Street” art style. The event will feature and recognize visual artists who live and/or work in the Mission District as well as those artists whose work reflects solidarity and a strong sense of cultural heritage. Artists will present their work live in short demonstrations for an interactive audience at various venues on Calle 24/24th Street Corridor.
Programming at Dance Mission Theater:
Pecha Kucha Artists: Josue Rojas, Rio Yanez
Musical Performance by La Gente!
