SAN FRANCISCO ART COMMISSION:
ART ON MARKET STREET.
Six unique images by Rodney Ewing in bus kiosks along SF's busy commercial corridor.
"With the current political climate of aggression toward Sanctuary cities and their constituents, along with federal reinforcement of this sentiment, the stories of immigrants and their families are being overlooked. The humanity of these individuals is being taken for granted, and as a result, our sense of empathy has also suffered.
In order to subvert this current state of suspicion, while also making individual narratives and identity paramount, I reconstructed institutional systems of identification to allow the participants in this project a platform to tell their diverse stories. My goal for this project is to move this discussion of immigration from being monolithic, to one that is complexed and nuanced as the people reflected in this art work."
