We are appreciating our Bay Area Art Roots with this new Whirligig Interview with Jan Rindfleisch.

jan rindfleisch

Jan is an artist, educator, writer, curator and cultural worker. She was the executive director of the Euphrat Museum at De Anza College in Cupertino for 32 years. During that time she laid the groundwork for an engaged and inclusive museum environment by continuously tapping the diverse local voices of Silicon Valley.

Jan continues her work as a community builder with Roots and Offshoots: Silicon Valley’s Arts Community, a history of the art of the greater South Bay area from the post-Mission era artifacts of our First Nation peoples to the artists and activists that have made the western/southern half of the Bay Area the rich and vibrant scene it is today.
