This performance course will concentrate on the history of the body in performance art and how the incorporation of the human form changes the experience for both the performer and the viewer. We will focus heavily on concepts of performance art and its collaboration with other mediums such as the written word or sculpture. You will learn more about the use of your body in artwork through a series of exercises and collaborations. The class will culminate with each student producing a performance to be experienced either live or documented.

Although Dana uses a variety of mediums, she focuses on sculpture, photography and performance.
Dana grew up in central Pennsylvania and obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.
SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
