Anné M. Klint, an artist in residence at the Grand since October, invited Tracy residents, business owners and community leaders to tell their stories of how the faltering economy and housing market impacted their lives.
The resulting interviews and personal recollections are part of the documentary “Home,” which will be screened 6 p.m. June 8 in the Eleni Tsakopoulos-Kounalakis Theatre at the Grand, 715 Central Ave.
Seating for the free screening is first come, first served.
An opening reception for the accompanying exhibition, titled “Fire Sale (Everything Must Go),” will follow from 7 to 9 p.m.
Klint’s exhibition will be displayed in the Grand galleries until July 20. Additional screenings of the documentary will be scheduled later.
The artist and a panel of participants will reflect on the project during a gallery talk from noon to 2 p.m. July 13.
Klint said in a press release that she was looking forward to the debut of her documentary.
“The scope of the project is immense, and I can’t help but feel I have left much work undone,” she said. “By glancing over the images and revisiting the interviews, I remember the many who have contributed to this documentary storytelling project, whose stories make up the larger story of what happened throughout communities like Tracy since the recent housing market crash.”
Klint and the Grand Theatre received a $31,591 grant from the Creative Work Fund for the project, “Inhabit Your City: Voices of Tracy.”
The Grand galleries are open to the public during exhibitions from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and an hour before most performances in the theater.
