282 is a journal comprised of artist interviews conducted by upper division Bachelor of Art students in San Francisco State University’s Art Department, under the guidance of Paula Levine, Professor of Art.
The focus of our project is on artists in the San Francisco bay area—and beyond—who inspire us. This journal is an eclectic collection of conversations with people working in many different disciplines including a muralist, make up artist, painters, a performance artist, ceramicists, digital artists and printmakers. 282 offers an informative and accessible look at these working artists who are committed to their practices and are, thankfully, willing to share their experiences with us, as we navigate our own way through the art world.
Through our interviews, we learned about each artist’s processes and influences, and were given a view of their work that may not have been part of a gallery or museum setting. We have documented and published these interviews with the hope of giving our readers a glimpse into different art practices that may spark interest in their own practices of making art.
Whether you are an artist, a lover of art or simply one who wants to know what is going on in your community, 282: Artists in Conversation offers a unique perspective.
