ARTalk: Juan R. Fuentes

Events // ARTalk: Juan R. Fuentes

Aug 25 - Aug 25

Overview // Join SLOMA for a Saturday afternoon ARTalk with artist and Pressing Matters 2018 juror, Juan R. Fuentes.

Mr. Fuentes is a Chicano Artist living in San Francisco, California. He is also a long time cultural worker, art teacher, social activist/poster maker, and printmaker whose art reflects the pressing social issues of our time.

"My art and social activism stems from my strong conviction that art is needed to make social change a possibility, to help heal the injustice’s faced by people of color around the world. I have the historical experience of the Civil Rights Movement and the Chicano, Black Power Movement, Native American and Anti- War Movements of the 1960s and 70s for my inspiration."

Details // An opening reception for the exhibition Pressing Matters 2018 will follow the ARTalk from 3 to 5 PM. Both events are free and open to the public.
