ACF's Parked Art / Art in Public Places Summary:

Board News Going and Coming
We are grateful for, and salute the years of service by Kristin Otis and Joe Fox who will be moving from the ACF Board of Directors to the Advisory Board. Art at the Cheese Factory has been in a state of transition during the past two years. We have changed from being a place based organization to being a Marin based organization to support contemporary art in Marin. Now that we have a new direction, we are on the lookout for new faces and new energy to fill places available on our working board. This meeting of arts people in Marin on March 18th, will be an opportunity for us to focus on how we can look towards the future, and work with other Marin arts organizations presenting contemporary art in Marin.

Art at the Cheese Factory has been invited to curate an exhibition of three-dimensional work (floor, pedestal and wall-hung ) for the downstairs gallery of the Marin Civic Center. The display space includes two walls, approximately 8 feet x 40 feet. As this is a passageway, floor work should not extend more than 3 feet from the wall. We will show approximately 30 pieces for three months beginning fall 2013 or winter 2014. People who have applied for Parked Art will be considered as well as new applicants.
