Join us for the culmination of the 2016 Mission Voices Summer program! My ________ is (Not) a Shape invites us to look at form, and how we come to be seen. The youth artists of Mission Voices Summer investigate movement, making, mindfulness, and memory. The artists weave together their individual and collective experiences to redefine our notions of “The Mission,” San Francisco, and the spaces we inhabit.
Southern Exposure's Mission Voices Summer (MVS) is a FREE four-week intensive summer arts program for youth aged 14-21. Young artists learn to use the visual arts as a tool for expressing ideas, ambitions, and creativity. In MVS, youth artists spend the summer working with more than 40 other Bay Area youth and six professional artists to develop an art exhibition in SoEx's large Mission-district gallery.
