To celebrate the ‘grand’ opening of The Situation Room, Micol Hebron will be screening a selection of 50+ video artworks by female-identified video artists from around the country.

NOTE: You may stop by on the early side (starting at 4:30) if you wish to see The Situation Room in the daylight. Video Screenings will begin at 5:30 and will run (on a loop) throughout the evening – so you can arrive anytime you wish and stay for as little or as long as you like!

The Situation Room is a project space and resource room for artists in need. A place for artists, writers, comedians, architects, thinkers, performers, community members, and concerned citizens to use as needed to support their creative practice. It is located in a converted one-car garage, with white walls, and a barn door that is set up to be an indoor or outdoor projection surface. The Situation Room can be reserved for exhibitions, screenings, talks, performances, dinners, consciousness-raising sessions, workshops, and more, on a proposal basis. There is some equipment available for on-site use: a large printer, a small printer, a few old video cameras, projectors, etc. All equipment must remain on site – but can be checked out for projects, screenings, shoots, etc. It’s a DIY space – you make it happen!

The White House Situation Room mission/description is:
“A conference room and intelligence management center to monitor domestic and international events, provide current intelligence and crisis support, one-stop shop for sensitive information flowing into and out”.
That’s pretty much the same for Micol’s Situation Room. 🙂

I hope you’ll join me on February 21st to check out the
videos and the space, and learn more about it all!

*The Situation Room has been made possible by a grant from the California Community Foundation, and by generously donated labor and ideas of dear friends (including Primitivo Suarez-Wolfe, Ginger Wolfe-Suarez, Jim Haag)

During the opening, there will be:
