The Personal is Political at the Annenberg Beach House Gallery

We celebrated the opening of Personal Narrative on Tuesday, Feb. 28th and got a warm reception from artists and the Santa Monica community. Thank you to Sheli Silverio and the staff at Annenberg who helped coordinate the show. I wrote the proposal to showcase the identity and the individual context of the artists included in the show with works ranging from stories about their Jewish diaspora, gender disparities, body image issues, environmental concerns and immigrant background. Keeping in mind that our Personal Narrative shapes and molds who we are as artists and makers in the 21st century. 

The show runs through June 4th!
