YBCA:You members are invited to this art-making workshop with artist Miriam Klein Stahl. Stahl, co-founder Berkeley High School’s Arts and Humanities Academy, is known for her powerful portraits of activists and artists including Phoolan Devi, Emma Goldman, James Baldwin, and Harry Hay. Stahl collaborated with her former student, Gabby Miller, to create original interactive artwork for the Occupy Oakland movement. This work—displayed in the Occupy Bay Area exhibition—serves as an inspirational platform in which the viewer becomes both the artist and the visionary. Stahl will lead a printmaking workshop in which Youers will create the very Occupy Oakland poster hanging in the gallery. Materials supplied, but bring a t-shirt or any other item you want to silkscreen!
