A few years ago, as part of a program centered on the homeless, eighth graders at the San Francisco Friends School in the Mission read an article in the Chronicle about my drawings and I was invited to speak to these eighth graders at the school about my work. This led to an installation of the drawings in the second floor gallery space of the school in January and February 2018.
I find it gratifying that my work can be a teaching tool for the teachers of these students and that the drawings are perceived as an example of how art, social justice, and action intertwine and intersect. The goal of these drawings has always been to shine a light on injustice and to empower others to make a difference. These students give me such hope for an eventual solution for the problem of those without shelter in this city.
