In the episode of Deep Roots, we meet with William Rhodes, a furniture sculpture artist who is concurrently working with three of the four City-owned Cultural Centers. He is a teaching artist for the Dare to Dream youth arts program at Bayview Opera House and created an installation with his students for this year’s Day of the Dead exhibition at SOMArts Cultural Center. He also has the prestigious honor of being selected for a solo exhibition in the Sargent Johnson Gallery at African American Art and Culture Complex, on view through February 2013.

How did William arrive at his spiritual evolution into arts? Listen and find out!

This podcast was produced by the Community Arts and Education program at the San Francisco Arts Commission. The executive producer is Robynn Takayama.

Two years ago, we knew almost nothing about the palatial white facade going up on at 1025 Market Street. We heard rumors of saffron-robed monks shuffling in and out – and about a live stream flowing through the building. Now, the International Art Museum has been open for almost a year, revealing a surreal oasis on Central Market.

For 2 Blocks of Art, the museum opens its doors through 8 p.m. for folks to discover one of San Francisco’s newest cultural treasures. Catch Citizens Jazz performing outside of the museum on September 28, and Garrett Kobsef Trio performing on October 19.
