Dear President is an art exhibition corresponding with the presidential inauguration in January 2017. The artwork being shown touches on issues that face our country. The art will be displayed along with the artists’ letters to the president as a statement. All the artwork and letters will be combined into a catalog that will be mailed out to Washington DC to the President, other representatives and the press. The catalog will also be available to order for purchase.
Artists have an unexpected way of contributing to the conversation through their unique visual interpretations. They bring a sensitivity and perspective to the issues through emotional expression, abstraction, visualization, humor, and parody. These works of art seek to create and communicate a collective narrative, articulating who we are, where we come from, what we stand for and what we are against.
Some of America’s major issues will be addressed in the exhibition such as: Money in Politics, Climate Change, Military Quagmires, Women’s Reproductive Rights, Education, Polarization (Cultural divisiveness), Inequality (social and economic), Gun Control, Immigration, Military Spending, GMO, Fracking, Space, Drug Policy, Welfare, Criminal Justice, and more…

Byte of Science 🔬Thanks to everybody who came out to this event. We looked at bees, trees, bacteria, and swarms to understand our Web of Life, emergence and what is possibly considered a new science and movement inspired by Frijov Capra’s The System’s View Of Life: A Unified Vision. Thanks Hamed Mirzaei for organizing! Excited to be the new VP of Arts at the Hamed Mirzaei Foundation For Arts & Sciences
Discussed emergence, networks, and hive-mind at the Rick and Susan Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity (the HIVE) located at Pamona College, serving the 5C’s. Students and staff created individual drawings which when installed together creates a complete picture of bees, a known superorganism. This workshop intends to reveal how collaboration generates emergence to form a new and unified form created by the efforts of many, much like the colony effect of bees in a hive.
Got to be the Visiting Artist at UCLA Broad Art Center last week. We discussed collage, layers, process, and art fundamentals. We did a Collage Workshop introducing digital collage as a medium and brainstorming method for drawing and painting. Thank you Camella Daeun Kim for the invitation 🙂
