Curator Kheven LaGrone wondered what the Black Lives Matter movement means in the San Francisco Bay Area, and asked several local black artists to depict how they use their art to make their lives matter.

In the new exhibit, My Art Makes My Life Matter, on view June 17 – Aug. 10 in the Main Library’s African American Center, several artists share personal stories on how artwork empowers them. 

On Saturday, June 17 there will be an artist talk and discussion at 1:30 p.m. in the Main Library’s African American Center. 

“Creating art cleanses my mind of ugly or useless thoughts by dredging them from my subconscious into a permanent form that forces me to acknowledge and release them, “ says artist Adam Herbst. “It also manifests the positive, constructive ideas that I didn’t know were in me. This creates clarity, joy and hope.” 

These cultural events are free and open to the public.

This is a Making & Creative Arts program from SFPL. Create with us- from clothes to robots to so much more.
