What is LATE NITE ART?
LATE NITE ART it is an evening of collaborative art-making, ambient music, delicious food and insightful discussion. In a few words, it's a social art experience.
Alongside a locally-sourced 3-course meal, our evening will revolve around the theme "Know Your Food." Surrounded by a beautiful exhibit entitled The Lexicon of Sustainability: Information Artworks by Douglas Gayeton, we will be getting our hands dirty exploring issues of food culture, localism, and farming.
LATE NITE ART is NOT an event for artists - you don't need to be able to color within the lines or draw portraits of fruit bowls - you just need eyes, ears, and an open mind.

Grace Hearth is the collaboration between Keri Keifer of 'Oakland Hearth' and Jocelyn Jackson of 'With Grace.'

Adam Rosendahl is a social artist, facilitator, DJ, and event producer living in Oakland, CA. Through his love of visual art, good food, community engagement, and facilitation he founded LATE NITE ART in 2010. He specializes in “creative facilitation,” teaching educators and leaders how to effectively incorporate creativity and the arts into programs and curriculum to enhance learning.
The Lexicon of Sustainability is a multiplatform project based on a simple premise: people can't be expected to live more sustainable lives if they don't know the most basic terms and priciples that define sustainabbility.
Filmmaker/photographer Douglas Gayeton and producer Laura Howard-Gayeton have crisscrossed the United States to learn this new language of sustainability from its foremost practitioners. Their unusual "crowd-sourcing" approach allows the public to suggest ideas and even host shows of the work. These methods have helped transform their grassroots project into an international organization with volunteers across the globe.
The nonprofit David Brower Center is a vibrant place that inspires, sustains, and brings together people committed to environmental and social action. The Center offers educational and arts programs, stunning conference and event facilities, high-quality office space for nonprofits, and the award-winning Gather Restaurant—all in the greenest building in Berkeley. It is named to honor David Brower, a Berkeley native who many consider the father of the modern environmental movement.
