Every ticket includes KAPS pregame tailgating (weather permitting) and access to pregame Courtside Shootaround and a free Asian Heritage Night t-shirt! Tickets (Club 200) are $95 for kids and KAPS members, $105 for regular adults ($88/$98 with Early Bird pricing - plus $3 transaction fee) and can be purchased at http://buytickets.at/kaps/123965

As an added perk, the first 20 kids get to high-five Blazers (remember, Damian Lillard is from Oakland!) players as they exit the tunnel before the game.

home movie day: korean americans in the bay area

On behalf of the Mills College Art Museum (MCAM), I am excited to be reaching out to you about our upcoming event in conjunction with our current exhibition, In Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area. On Saturday Nov. 4th from 11am-3pm, MCAM will host Home Movie Day: Korean Americans in the Bay Area. Home Movie Day celebrates amateur filmmaking and provides the opportunity for individuals and families to author and share their memories with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn. MCAM invites you to bring your 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, VHS and DVDs to our theater, Danforth Hall.

If you have film that fits our criteria we encourage you to bring it.  We’ll provide equipment and volunteers to project your footage. Home Movie Day is free and open to anyone who wants to participate. For this particular event, we encourage members of the local Korean and Korean American community to contribute and present your film about life in the Bay Area.

The movie drop off will be from 11:00 AM- 1:00 PM, and the screening will be from 1:00-3:00 PM. Refreshments will be served.  

The Mills College Art Museum and I would like to extend this invitation to you, and encourage you to share the details of these events with your community through your social media channels or by forwarding the information in the email to your contacts.

IN-BETWEEN PLACES: KOREAN AMERICAN ARTISTS IN THE BAY AREA

SEPTEMBER 13-DECEMBER 10, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 16, 6–8pm    

Join us September 16, 2017 to celebrate the opening of In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area with new work by Jung Ran Bae; Sohyung Choi; Kay Kang; Miran Lee; Youngjune Lew; Nicholas Oh; Younhee Paik; and Minji Sohn. The artists featured in this exhibition reveal the reality and complexities of being a Korean American artist in the Bay Area—a location that has served as a gateway for Korean culture and a bridge between Korea and the West.
 
Organized by Mills College Art Museum, In-Between Places is curated by independent curator Linda Inson Choy (a specialist in contemporary Korean art) and Consulting Curator Hyonjoeng Kim Han, Associate Curator of Korean Art at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. The exhibition is accompanied by an academic catalogue that includes a contextual essay on Korean American artists in the Bay Area by Mills College Professor Mary-Ann Milford, Ph.D.; a conversation between the curators, and interviews with the participating artists.
 
In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area is supported through the generosity of the Korean Foundation and the Carpenter Foundation.
