Favianna Rodriguez, who is a really badass and talented Oakland-based artivist, just did some pieces on DREAMERS and our/their complexities. You can read about it on her blog. The image on the left is a portrait of me by Favianna inspired by one of my various rants. It’s always interesting to see how others see, perceive and envision you. How they present you to the world. And compare it to the image you have of yourself. I recognize my nose.
The exhibit runs June 11 – August 20th at Intersection for the Arts. 925 Mission Street at 5th Street in the iconic San Francisco Chronicle Building. In other words, it is hanging somewhere down the street from me. Maybe I should make an effort to gaze into those fiery eyes and learn something from the perception.
