Hayes Valley Art Works: A Community Creation Space

By Kaylee Fagan

Hayes Valley Art Works, a “community creation space,” was erected on historic Parcel O on the corner of Fell and Laguna streets, in Hayes Valley. Artists, students, neighbors and families come to “the Works” to create and appreciate visual and performance art, as well as study permaculture, ecology, and urban design with creator and Director Jay Rosenberg.

Participatory Art Workshop with Sonja Hinrichsen – Saturday, May 21st

Participants of all ages are invited to join local artist Sonja Hinrichsen for an interactive workshop to create a piece of public art to be displayed at Hayes Valley Art Works.

“I hope that my works help arouse appreciation and consciousness for the natural world. Modern society is becoming increasingly disconnected from nature. I believe, however, that for a successful future of humanity it is essential that we re-gain a greater awareness of our planet’s life and tune ourselves in with the natural world, understand it better and take better stewardship thereof.”

Learn more about Sonja’s work at www.sonja-hinrichsen.com

Space will be limited, and registration will open on Thursday, May 12th.  More details will be available at that time – stay tuned!

City of Refuge – A Conversation With Starhawk – Sunday, April 24th, 2pm

Join Starhawk as she reads from her new book, City of Refuge!

Starhawk-by-Stephan-Readmond-768x1152

Starhawk is one of the most respected voices in modern earth-based spirituality, and the author or coauthor of twelve books.

City of Refuge picks up where The Fifth Sacred Thing left off- just a few weeks after Califia has successfully defeated the invading Stewards. As the Califians replant their garden streets and rebuild their beautiful city, they struggle to integrate the soldiers who have defected to the north. When a warship is discovered off the coast, the Califians realize that their peaceable society will never be truly safe until the Southlands are also free.

Hayes Valley Art Works is a collaborative project created in partnership with Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association and Haight Street Art Center.
