Crocker Art Museum says
Join the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum, Sol Collective, and Verge Center for the Arts for a workshop focused on alternative forms of artistic engagement. Artists Juan Sorrentino and Miguel Arzabe will co-facilitate the workshop, which provides Sacramento artists an opportunity to explore the principles of Social Practice Art through experimentation and guidance. Art+Impact workshops are held from April-June 2015. Workshops are for artists only.

Miguel Arzabe is a San Francisco based artist who makes work that draws from the concerns of conceptual art and painting. Miguel's work has been featured in Hors Pistes at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montréal, Canada,and RM Projects in Auckland New Zealand amongst numerous national and international exhibitions.

Juan Sorrentino is an artist, musician, and composer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His work encompasses multimedia concert works, sound installations, videos and electronic-acoustic music. Juan has performed in diverse venues all across South America, the United States and Europe.

Miguel and Juan are currently featured in a two-person exhibition, Las Cosas que Pintan / Painting in an Expansive Field, presented by Verge Center for the Arts and CULT | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions. The exhibition is on view from April 9 - May 17 at Verge Center for the Arts.

Sacramento area artists who participate in at least three Art+Impact workshops, have a unique opportunity to develop social practice art projects for Sacramento communities. The Museum is accepting proposals for innovative community art experiences designed specifically for Sacramento Districts 2, 5, and 8. Proposals are due by June 30, 2015.

The Art+Impact series supports a larger Crocker Art Museum initiative, Block by Block. Crocker Block by Block explores how to engage communities who are underrepresented at the Crocker, in a way that is enriching and authentic. Block parties will bring various groups together in celebrations characterized by diverse participation, innovation, self-expression, social responsibility, collaboration, and mutual needs and interests.

Block by Block is an initiative which engages City of Sacramento Districts 2, 5, and 8 in the arts and is made possible with a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.
