Hayes Valley Art Works presents “Protect and Resist: Art from the Arc of San Francisco.”
Hayes Valley Art Works presents “Protect and Resist: Art from the Arc of San Francisco.” The exhibit Protect and Resist is a group show featuring the work of artists from The Arc San Francisco’s ArtReach Studios. The artists consider what the words protect and resist mean personally, connecting the creative process to a social issue each individual feels passionate about. Protect and Resist reflects various historical lessons, discussions, and collaborations surrounding the themes of art and activism. This focus on the intersection of personal expression and personal politics gives each artist the opportunity to explore ways to communicate complex political and social issues through striking visual forms, from poster art to large-scale paintings to mixed-media sculpture.
It is open to the public starting Friday, September 7 from 11-5pm. An artist’s reception will be held Friday September 7 from 11:30-2 pm. Gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11am-5pm and by appointment. For additional information, please visit the hvaw website .
