Memory Trace Opening Reception
Please join us for an opening reception for the Memory Trace exhibition curated by Fred Alvarado.
Memory Trace is an intergenerational public art project that took place at the San Antonio/Fruitvale Senior Center between the spring and summer of 2014. In order to build a bridge between generations the basis of the project was to have young people spend time at the Center and interview senior citizens. Working with students from ARISE High School and the Unity Council's Latino Men and Boys Group a compilation of interviews was transformed into a comic book. The exhibition consists of the comic book, original drawings, paintings, and stories gathered by the youth and the seniors.
This event is supported by the Oakland City Council and funded by the City of Oakland's Cultural Funding Program.
