San Francisco (CA) – The Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) is pleased to announce Designing Change: A Conversation with David Hogg, December 4, 2018. The Museum of Craft and Design welcomes Parkland activist, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and author David Hogg to San Francisco to share his personal story and vision for change in our country.
“The Museum of Craft and Design’s Designing Change series focuses on the ability of creative individuals to inspire meaningful change for themselves and their communities,” said MCD Executive Director JoAnn Edwards. “We, like the rest of nation, have been inspired by Hogg and the Parkland students’ courageous leadership and fearless commitment to better the lives of youth. I’m moved and awed by these young people and the clarity they bring to the need to keep schools a sacred place.”
Designing Change: A Conversation with David Hogg , moderated by Brian Edwards-Tiekert of KPFA, will take place at Minnesota Street Project, followed by a reception and book signing with Hogg at the Museum of Craft and Design. Both arts venues are located within walking distance of each other in the historic Dogpatch district in San Francisco.
Concurrently, Al Farrow: Divine Ammunition, a new exhibition of work by internationally acclaimed sculptor Al Farrow will be on view at the Museum of Craft and Design. Farrow is known for his works that employ munitions–bullets, guns, grenades, bombs–to make powerful sculptures of reliquaries and holy structures. Through his chosen media, Farrow reclaims tools of destruction to evoke peaceful social commentary. Included in the exhibition is the debut of Farrow’s latest work, The White House, weighing almost a ton and created with his traditional materials of bullets, guns and steel.
David Hogg’s new book, “#NeverAgain” will be on sale during the event at both locations and in advance of the event at MCD’s Store.
