Using art to document histories has been used for over 50,000 years. In this two-year project, run by the Sonoma County Museum and funded by an engagement grant from the James Irvine Foundation, we invited immigrants from many different countries to participate. Folks who had never dared to express themselves through art were amazed to discover a medium in which they were not only articulate and empowered, but were unable to stop themselves from expressing their innermost thoughts and feelings in a surprisingly creative and imaginative way. Their stories and artwork were truly inspiring.
For over 40 years, artist Mario Uribe has worked in diverse media, ranging from animation to public art, with the last 25 years focused on traditional Japanese arts. He has exhibited widely in this country, Europe, Asia and Mexico. His works form part of museum and private collections in the US and Europe, and his public art, with a focus on community involvement, can be seen in many US cities, especially in Santa Rosa.
