East Bay painter and art activist Dickson Schneider brings his Free Art Project to San Francisco for the first time. He will be displaying art at the gallery which is free to take home to people who visit.
In 2008 Professor Schneider began the free art project with his students so they could experience the relationship between their art and the viewing public. Bringing his students to the Oakland (California) Art Murmur to give away art, Schneider was so moved by the disarming nature of the exchange that he made it the foundation of his own art practice.
Over the past five years Schneider has created over 2800 works of art to give away to the public on the street in Oakland and last December at the commercially charged “bling” spectacle of Art Basel Miami. In July he took the Project to the Kunstraum Tapir gallery in Berlin, Germany and made art there which was displayed in the gallery and available free to passersby. The Berlin project was featured on Deutschlandradio, a national Art and Culture program.
In Rhyme nor Reason, the Free Art Project, San Francisco, the Gallery will be showing Schneider’s works in an ever changing array as work is taken by the public. The title reflects the work that will be shown; an uninhibited, unrestricted creative melange. The Free Art Project is both fun and serious commentary on the social/political world of contemporary art. It is the artist’s critique of status, privilege, access, and how art is valued.
Dickson Schneider teaches painting and art at California State University East Bay. He is represented in California by Autobody Fine Art. His work is in collections from London to Hong Kong. Mr. Schneider is the author of Every Angler’s Guide to Amazing Lures and Flies, Viking, 1997.
