San Francisco's de Young Features Dominican Artist

Art instructor Livia Stein is this month’s Artist in Residence in the Kimball Education Gallery at San Francisco’s de Young Museum. Stein teaches printmaking at Dominican.

Every month the museum invites artists to install and demonstrate their art format in the Kimball Education Gallery. This interactive program enables visitors to meet artists and gives the artists an opportunity to work with the public. Admission to the Kimball Education Gallery is free of charge.

Stein’s Mobile Studio will be in the Kimball Education Gallery from October 3 through October 28. The exhibit will be open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.

Visitors to the Kimball will be able to view source materials —objects, toys, textiles, books — and then sit down to draw or create another art project. Those interested in a less ‘hands-on’ approach will be able to watch Stein while she works and talk with the artist about her work.

Stein will deliver an artist talk on Friday, October 12 at 7 p.m. A closing reception in the Kimball Education Gallery will be held on Friday, October 26 from 6 p.m. until 8:45 p.m. For more information about the Kimball Education Gallery, call 415-750-7634.

This summer, Stein delivered a paper at the Second International Conference of Arts in Society in Kassel, Germany, about how her work has been influenced by her many travels in India.
