It's been a difficult two years for many many people, my family and I are no exception. While my mind was in my sketchbook, there were a million things happening since the start of the pandemic, too many to list, which ultimately kept me from spending any time in a studio producing new work. Needless to say, I was slow to complete most of the projects as I envisioned for 2021. I am, however, very content to know that one of the new pieces I was able to complete is finally up and on display in the once-in-a-life-time exhibition Art for the Future: Artists Call and Central American Solidarities, at Tuft University Galleries, surrounded by other amazing works by Gregory Sholette, the late Ana Mendieta, et al.

Here are a few exhibition images released by Tufts University Art Galleries on social media. Not all the information is complete–I'll be posting information and images in the weeks to come. Art for the Future will require further meditation as there are many complex histories contained here within this exhibition which encompass many years of the ever evolving struggle endured by many communities far and near. If you really dig what you are seeing, then do get the book!

All this to say, if you happen to be planning a weekend trip to Boston, give yourself at least two days to check out this exhibition, and do look for my piece! + a list of all the events planned to date below!
