Artists for Social and Political Awareness present Claudia Bernardi, Susan Greene and Guy Colwell, three professional artists, to talk about their political art and their activism.
Claudia Bernardi:Born in Buenos Aires, Bernardi is an internationally known artist who works in the fields of human rights and social justice and who has exhibited her work in over 40 solo exhibitions. She is an artist who has witnessed monstrous atrocities and unspeakable human tragedies, yet speaks of these horrors in ways that communicate the persistence of hope, undeniable integrity, and necessary remembrance.
A Bay Area public artist, activist, muralist and clinical psychologist, Greene has been working with Break the Silence Mural Project since 1989 to use art and activism in the struggle for a just peace in Palestine. She directs the learning center at the San Francisco Art Institute and is an adjunct professor at the University of San Francisco.
Guy Colwell: Jailed for his refusal to go to Vietnam in the late 60?s, Colwell began to create art that discusses political, social, peace and justice issues while in prison.
In late 70?s and early 80?s he created commentary comicbook art. Between 1988 and 1992 he worked in the Sierra foothills and began to break away from urban focused realism, dealing mostly with the relationship between humans, animals and the environment.
