|Who is the Pacific Art Collective?|
Who are we?
Pacific Art Collective (PAC) is recognized for catapulting a contemporary collaborative arts movement. PAC is a not for profit arts organization dedicated to presenting events that create awareness for PAC-Regional artists, art districts & venues through cross-cultural education and live performance.
Over the past 3 years, PAC has inspired many individuals & groups to follow this vision. From the San Francisco Bay Area to Las Vegas, throughout Los Angeles and Portland, a collaborative art movement is going down.
Since establishing in September 2002, the Pacific Art Collective have produced and co-produced over 70 live art events. PAC creates vital exposure for art-centric venues and districts such as the San Jose Museum of Art, Art Share Los Angeles, First Friday Las Vegas, Le Petite Trianon Theatre, Arts Day Milpitas, Oaklandish Gallery, 2 Gyrls Performative Arts and many other wonderful spaces. (see venues).
Over 450 artists (see artists) have showcased their work and live performance through original PAC events known as PAC SESSION (see PAC SESSION), DivrsCity (see DivrsCity), COLLABO (see COLLABO) & in 2005 partnering with San Jose Museum of Art for the highly successful program, Cultural Xposure (see Cultural Xposure).
Pacific Art Collective highlights community culture and artistic genres equally; molding them into positive, innovative and experimental group’s. PAC successfully stabilizes a pro-active, affirmative United Nation for SF Bay Area and West Coast artists.
PAC strives to encourage others to follow our endeavors and to participate along with us and on their own, inspiring and assisting communities to grow and prosper through true visions of cultural and artistic cooperation.
PAC addresses and supports such issues as the state of the art world and how it is ever changing. It also supports methods for finding your audience through effective and ineffective promotional materials and ways to approach them constructively.
The Pacific Art Collective aspires to attain and manage our own Creative Art Space and Entertainment Cultural Center someday. Our fingers are X’d!
