This coming May-June 2017, P.A.T.H. present’s “ART ESCAPE AT ALCATRAZ”: A pictorial and historical tribute to the history of ‘The Rock’ through original works of art and poetry by incarcerated artists from around the U.S.
After three years of persistent submission of formal application to the Art in the Parks Conservancy of San Francisco, P.A.T.H was given the 'thumbs up' to gain access to and use The BAND PRACTICE ROOM at Alcatraz for this very special show.
So, on early Tuesday morning February 28th, artist photographer friend, Barry Toranto and I headed out to the island where we met up with Sabrina Bedford (Art and Community Engagement Coordinator for the Golden Gate Parks Service) to scope out the venue space; take measurements and notes as to everything we’ll need for the upcoming art installation. So exciting!
After all the heavy deluge of rainfall we’ve had in this area, we were initially concerned about what the weather was going to be like that day. But we sure hit the jackpot that day! Alcatraz island is a photographer’s delight. Check out the series of pics and enjoy!
