ABOUT THE PROJECT
After a six month residency at the Asian Art Museum, I took over the Village Artist Corner this summer to radiate the themes of the exhibition Divine Bodies into the community surrounding the museum. Divine Bodies asks us to look for the divine in the human, and I found it in women living and working in the Tenderloin. With a series of painted portraits paired with their stories captured on video about the participants and their lives, my intention is to shine a light on those who are needed to be seen.
Stop by the mural at the Village Artist Corner and take a long look at the faces of these women and hear their voices. They can be viewed right in front of the Asian Art Museum at 200 Larkin Street, SF, CA 94102.
