Occupy Bay Area
In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the television show, This Week in Northern California.
In this segment, Spark visits the Occupy Bay Area art exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts which opens July 7 and runs through October 14, 2012.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
