What happens when one is confronted with violence and death? The Red Door Gallery and Collective presents, Insights of Life from the Shadows of Death an exhibition focusing on the past, present and future of art for human rights and art against violence. Join us as we bring the community together in one space in hopes of shedding light on human rights issues and the cause and effect of violence on our streets, in our community and around the world. There are several perspectives surrounding these issues and we hope to cover as many of them as possible. What can art do for humanity? Has art helped you heal? What are the new visual symbols of non-violence? Art is not only a powerful healing tool for those who suffer from the ripples of violence and death, but can be used pro-actively to spread visual imagery of a non-violent future.

The Main gallery will feature the work of San Quentin death row artist James P. Anderson. The installation will show this one man’s journey and his widespread connections developed and nurtured through his art and writings.
