Mobile MakeArt: Shipyard Open Studios

April 28 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Hunters Point Shipyard

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to explore the work and studio spaces of over 100 local artists at Hunters Point Shipyard Open Studios, Wander through these historic buildings which are usually closed to the public—enjoy food from emerging local chefs, experience sounds of neighborhood musicians, and even create a free art project.

Our free craft is inspired by the work of Joe Feddersen, one of seventeen artists featured in our current exhibition: Indie Folk: New Art and Sounds from the Pacific Northwest. Participants will have the opportunity to design a unique monotype painting incorporating common city symbols, much like Feddersen!

Craft to connect with in-person art making at the MakeArt van or pick up a FREE MakeArt Kit!

FREE event and drop-in activity, all-ages welcome.

Funding for the Museum of Craft and Design’s MakeArt programs is provided by the special interest license plate featuring the image of Snoopy, with permission and support from Peanuts Worldwide (Section 5169 of the Vehicle Code) for the Museum Grant Program under the California Cultural and Historical Endowment. Additional support for MakeArt is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Indie Folk: New Art and Sounds from the Pacific Northwest

February 24–June 30, 2024

The Pacific Northwest is home to a unique artistic ecosystem involving craft traditions, pre-industrial cultures, and Indigenous and settler histories. Like folk art, the exhibition features handmade works that are unpretentious, and often blur the line between functionality and aesthetics.
