Join us for a national gathering of preservation professionals, with a special guest speaker. We are proud to welcome visual artist Ben Wood to the wonderful surroundings of the Haas-Lilienthal House, operated and managed by San Francisco Heritage. Ben is a recipient of the California Governor’s Award for Historic Preservation; in his work with large-scale public projection and installations, he combines media technology with historical subject matter to create site-specific video installations to communicate meaningful stories about people and place.
‘Cultivating Creativity + NextGen Preservationists’ attendees will learn the behind-the-scenes process for how Ben creates engaging work. He will discuss how he strategically selects sites to engage the community through installations and you will gain some inspiration to create a project of your own.The event will take place in the Haas-Lilienthal House, an 1886 Queen Anne-style Historic House Museum, from 8 to 10pm; Ben’s talk begins at 9. Catering will be provided by the food truck MoBowl, and your ticket will include a free dinner. This is non-alcoholic event, though there will be time to mingle and network with the other guests before heading out the sample the city’s bars for the evening.
