Composing the Future II
Northern California Women's Caucus for Art
December 3, 2021 - January 14, 2022
Jennifer & Philip DiNapoli Gallery, Second Floor
"Composing the Future," a NCWCA member exhibition, originally premiered May-June, 2021 at the Bankhead Performing Arts Center in Livermore with 64 artworks. "Composing the Future II" is a curated iteration featuring a selection of these and new works.
This time of transition offers unique opportunities. Artists, traditionally, have been both witnesses and the raw material for envisioning potential futures in turbulent times. In "Composing the Future II," NCWCA artists were challenged to flex their artistic powers in response to the extreme events of the past two years and to project their hopes, dreams, and ideas into the future.

Justice For Our Lives is a digital portrait series of 100 people killed by US law enforcement since the beginning of the 21st century. This project is a visual aide to support the struggle, led primarily by impacted families and activists, against state sponsored terrorism that targets communities of color and other marginalized victims. The graphics are open source templates made available for free download at justiceforourlives.com offering protest art as an accessible tool to gain visibility for these victims through engagement with the community.
