ybca Charting the phases of the 'Second Moon' in our art storage space… 'Second Moon' is a moon fragment that's been orbiting the earth for the past year, making brief layovers in the mailing rooms, storage spaces, and galleries of art spaces around the world. We're sending it off for the final time this week, grateful to artist Katie Paterson for these brief encounters with the sublime limitlessness of the universe. –James, New Media #secondmoon 3d

  •   ybca "It allows people to see themselves and one another in a different light. And that's the power of art, I believe." The executive director of the San Quentin Prison Arts Project is being interviewed in the galleries this morning for a documentary on people and organizations that change lives through art. #BAN7 - Martin, Visual Arts 7d

ybca I have to admit I was starstruck meeting Do D.A.T.—MC, rapper, and teacher with Beats, Rhymes, and Life. We spoke about hip hop evolving into spaces where it’s not traditionally present, like his MC workshop at the Rockridge Library. On the day I visited, three of the transitional AIDS youth from their program were training to become facilitators. Amazing. —Trouve, Performing Arts #BAN7 1mon

ybca Never sweat so much and had so much fun! At Tania Santiago’s Afro-Brazilian dance class at ODC. As the value of spaces in SF rises, we know it becomes more difficult to sustain an art form, but Tania’s class becomes extended family, and somehow, the dance becomes bigger than the battle. —Trouve, Performing Arts #BAN7 1mon

ybca Scenes from a synaesthesia bar :) We got to meet Susan O’Malley and Leah Rosenberg—@montalvoarts' artists for #BAN7—at Leah's @lppshop residency, Color Bar. They gave us a flavor for the color–shape–audio "self-help" tour they're creating for YBCA's galleries, via these strange, gorgeous edibles… —James, New Media #ybca 3mon
