PROJECT 387

Artist Residency, Artist Community

Located on 150 acres of redwood forest, Project 387 provided a multidisciplinary residency program offering a community-based living and working experience for artists in all career stages. The residency was a unique opportunity to delve into the creative process in a focused, exploratory, and rigorous manner while removed from the clamor of urban distractions.

After four amazing seasons, Project 387 made the tough choice to cease operations. We will never forget the amazing experiences we had with a truly wonderful community of artists. It was our honor to provide time and space for artists to explore their creative process. This website serves as an archive to that time.

Alumni News: Robert Wechsler

As fall descends on us here in the Bay Area, we have been reminiscing about the warm summer days at Project 387. In the few short months since we last saw them, the Project 387 Alumni have been deep into development of some very impressive things. Robert Wechsler is no exception. We are not at all surprised after seeing him work night and day during the residency. 

Robert's work appeared across the pages of the October 14th issue of the New Yorker Magazine. He was commissioned by this esteemed publication to do a series of sculptures for their money themed issue. It proved to be a perfect pairing. Robert's complicated manipulation of currency added an intriguing visual element to stories about such subjects as the San Francisco start up world and the science behind manufactured pop stardom.  

Take a look at some shots from the magazine and see more of the sculptures here at www.robertwechsler.com
