Uc Berkeley Art Practice Inside

Walke Communications was instrumental in advancing, a semi-annual student art show in conjunction with the Art Practice School at UC Berkeley.  The exhibit, held at Belmont Village Albany, is a part of its university affiliation, to create intergenerational interaction between students and residents who are UC Berkeley retired faculty and staff.  Walke Communications helped to develop the program and helped to create a run of show protocol which includes a gallery reception and discussion of the art, along with art sales.  For many of the students, these are their first opportunities to show and discuss their work, and the show has generated multiple sales.

This project inspired a variation in the Los Angeles communities by the same name, but with a different twist.  The Westwood community is affiliated with UCLA, where retirees have begun to explore their artistic interests.  Belmont Village provided gallery space in two of our Los Angeles communities to support this program.
