A Pickpocket Strikes Again


Back in September, we featured an interview with Joseph Del Pesco, artist, guest curator, and creator of an innovative “school without walls” program called Pickpocket Almanack. Clearly the first Almanack go-around was a success, because it is back for Round Two.

The Spring 2010 Session of Pickpocket Almanack features such “curators” as Jim Fairchild (the guitarist for the band Modest Mouse), Jerome Waag (a chef from Chez Panisse), and Renny Pritinkin (a professor in the Curatorial Practice Program at CCA). These curators create “courses” based on cultural events occurring throughout the Bay Area, which aim to forge connections with the arts, ignite discussions, and reinvent the meaning of cultural education.

So, if you are interested and happen to be in the Bay Area, make sure you swing by SFMOMA’s website on Monday, February 15 to register for Pickpocket Almanack.
