RHODASCOPE: Scribbles, Smears, and the Universal L...

Presented by Verge Center for the Arts at Verge Center for the Arts

Join a talk by artist, Brian Belott and early childhood educator, Jennifer DiGioia about Rhoda Kellogg’s theories and collection of childhood art. The talk will be followed by a tour of its current exhibition, RHODASCOPE: Scribbles, Smears, and the Universal Language of Children According to Rhoda Kellogg. To keep our guests safe, all attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination at the door and wear masks while inside.

Brian Belott is an artist, curator, performer, and publisher based in Brooklyn, NY. He is the lead archivist of the Rhoda Kellogg International Child Art Collection and a lifelong collector of child art. His work was recently featured in the 2019 Whitney Biennial.

Jennifer DiGioia is in her thirtieth year as an early childhood educator and advocate. She taught at Phoebe A. Hearst Preschool Learning Center, founded by Rhoda Kellogg, for over a decade. She considers Kellogg’s work to be both the foundation and continual inspiration of her teaching practices.

RHODASCOPE brings together approximately 200 artworks from the Rhoda Kellogg International Child Art Collection of the Golden Gate Kindergarten Association / Phoebe Hearst Preschool selected by Belott; Belott’s own child art “forgery” paintings; and several of Kellogg’s original artworks, produced during her final years. This exhibition was previously organized by the San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries and originally presented at San Francisco City Hall in 2019-20.

Attendance will require proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Acceptable forms of vaccination status verification can be a physical COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or a Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record via the California Dept. of Public Health, or another state’s comparable agency. Please plan accordingly. We ask that you please act with kindness, respect, and courtesy when engaging with Verge’s staff and volunteers as we implement these policies. This vaccination requirement only applies to events occurring on site at Verge Center for the Arts at 625 S Street.
