Join Creative Time at the kickoff rally for The Bruce High Quality Foundation (BHQF)'s national Teach 4 Amerika tour next Tuesday, March 29 from 6:30pm-8pm at The Cooper Union Great Hall, 7 East 7th Street in Manhattan. Inspired by the spectacle and energy of a political rally, the event is the first in a series of rallies and conversations that call for a rethinking of the current art education system, and will feature a multimedia presentation by BHQF, balloons, t-shirts, and music from a local marching band.
Teach 4 Amerika is five-week, 11-city, coast-to-coast road trip, presented by Creative Time, that will cross state lines and institutional boundaries to inspire and enable local art students to define the future of their own educational experience. Traveling the byways of America in a limousine painted as a school bus, BHQF will visit university art departments, art schools, art institutions, and alternative spaces across the nation. The national tour will continue through May 2 with a combination of dynamic public rallies and intimate conversations hosted by local partners in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Minneapolis/St Paul, Detroit, Denver, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland.
