The undeniable power of artists lies in their ability to translate the everyday experiences of our personal lives into something tangible that speaks to larger social and political forces at work. The 366 days that constituted the year 2020 were filled with huge historic changes in America and throughout the world. Faced with nearly a year of sheltering in place, regional artists used their art making to process and expand upon critical events such as the Covid-19 pandemic, widespread fires throughout the West Coast, the Presidential election, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
This exhibit includes work by artists such as Lynn Beldner, Andres Alvarez, Jamie Angelo, Maurice Moore, Orin Carpenter, Sally Smith, Jennifer Nachmanoff, Deziree Dizon, Gayle BonDurant, Judy Neal, Pam Dixon, and Thomas Arie Donich. There will also be a video slideshow of work from the Healing Arts Project, as well as a large ‘community’ wall of art submitted by scores of artists.
