Marshall, Hoyle, and LEVYdance

Spark joins renowned visual artist Kerry James Marshall as he creates new murals in the atrium of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Like much of Marshall's work, the murals will explore racial identity, urban experience, and the impact of the Civil Rights movement.

Then, Dan Hoyle, son of famed Bay Area performer Geoff Hoyle, works on a new one-man show based on his travels across small-town and rural America, and the people he met along the way.

Next, Ben Levy and his modern dance company, LEVYdance, collaborate on a new work based on a previously untold family history.
