Please us for an evening of art and music, bringing together
the Bay Area’s artistic community and our thriving activist community.

This ambitious event will feature:

Music: “Scenes from Costa Rica” a new piece by local composer David Ryther, inspired by his trip to the rainforest, played by the Presidio String Quartet and students from the Crowden School of Music. 

Painting: The unveiling of a  new — huge — painting by Bay Area- based artist Chris Evans which shows, in mesmerizing detail, the connection  between our lives and the rainforests of Borneo. 

Insights: Composer and creative advisor of the Berkeley symphony, Gabriella Lena Frank, will be speaking about the intersection of art and activism. 

Information: Borneo Project Director, Jettie Word, will speak about the rainforests of Borneo, and what we can do to save them.
