People without locations... yet

Dear mapperos,

This is some of the people that does not have venues yet:

- Valentina Vitols
    "My proposal is to feature 8 Seattle-based artists (1 or 2 pieces per artist) with pieces that won't be larger than 8 inches on one or both of the sides of the piece. The show would be called Seattle in San Francisco 8x8. The idea is have as different media as possible, including painting, sculpture, music (8 seconds or 8 minutes), photography and video.
    I already have two artists from Seattle that would be ideal for this show (Chris Crites and Diana Falchuk). Once the project gets the green light by the MAPPEROS, I would immediately post the call for entries in several publications related to the art scene here in Seattle at no cost.
    Note than some (if not most) of the pieces will need to be hanged, so hammer and nails are going to be necessary. This means that the venue has to be all right with this."
    She already have some artists:
   1. Chris Crites (
   2. Diana Falchuk (
   3. John Sarkis (
   4. Zimmermann Studio (
   5. Shaun Kardinal (
    She will need wall for to hang the art.

- Kara Andrade
    "I would like to do an installation of this project I coordinated at UC Berkeley:
   The project, developed at the News 21 site at the University of California Graduate School of Journalism, Berkeley is part of the fellowship's 2007 program focusing on "God, Sex and Family." That's where choices about marriage, dating, the building of community, family and faith play out in private life. To see the stories as they unfold over the next three weeks, go to or go to Second Life to see them streamed into different tents created to look and feel like a church revival.
    The final event was a panel discussion on Sunday, July 29 from 12-1:30 PM PST held inworld and broadcast live through SLCN, the Second Life Cable Network. Religion writer and News21 Senior Editor Don Lattin moderated. Panelists include SL worshipers, spiritual leaders, and theologians. For more information contact Kara Andrade: kara.andrade [at] yahoo [dot] com, 510-384-0788 or inworld under KaraAndrade Writer."
She need a video proyector, wireless conection, and a wall to project the video.

- Ytaelena López (artist and curator) + Bruno López (artist) + More artists...
"An live-painting performance on paper mural.
We build a urban landscaping, a imaginary reflexion of Mission District-San Francisco. Inside this lanscaping is the people, that will participate allowing that their outline be taken. Inside this outline of real people, there are imaginaries worlds and face, in a kind of mise in abyme.
We need a big wall, a space for interact with the people around, and nothing more.
This performance can be complemented with music."
