SFMOMA's Free (!) Experimental Arts Classes

This October, SFMOMA will launch a new free-to-the-public educational program, Pickpocket Almanack. Under the direction of independent curator Joseph del Pesco, temporary faculty from the Bay Area arts community will build curricula around lectures, workshops, screenings, and other scheduled Bay Area events. The course will result in a new framework for each event, allowing the public to engage with the topic on a higher contextual level. Faculty include Megan and Rick Prelinger of the Prelinger Library and filmmaker Les Blank.

The courses will be conducted mainly online, but there will also be in-person meeting opportunities. The classes will begin this October, and while there's no fee to sign up, space will be limited. Enrollment begins September 23 at pickpocketalmanack.org, but note that the site doesn't include October - December class descriptions or the full faculty lineup yet.
