Indivisible: Kristine Hatanaka's high school art class

I am so pleased to post square number 102 created by Grace, a student from Kristine Hatanaka's art class from Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts:

 Pencil, pen and marker on paper, 2018.

The image shows one winged figure (perhaps an angel) holding out a bandage to another winged figure who appears to have an injured wing.  The writing above says, "Who are we to ignore the suffering of others?"  Indeed.  Grace's image is so appropriate for our times. Empathy and compassion are two of the most important qualities that demonstrate our humanity.

Please keep sending your squares to the Indivisible Project.

Indivisible: Moorpark College Art Gallery

I am so proud that the Indivisible Project was presented at the Moorpark College Art Gallery!  Professor Erika Lizée and her Gallery Practice Class hung all 155 squares in the gallery space.  The students also took part in the project and created their own squares which were showcased on a nearby walls.  (I will post their works individually soon.) The project was presented as part of their Multicultural Day celebration. See some of the photos below for the installation, and many thanks to Professor Lizée and her incredible class!
