The project, Exploring the Power of Art, examines the impact art has in reconstructing

societies which have been subjugated to different forms of violence and marginalization

(e.g. segregation and discrimination). The project consists of three phases, which will

investigate the different roles art can play in re-developing communities. These phases

are: a symposium, a workshop and a photography exhibition.

Phase One: An engaging and interactive symposium, History Talks: Reconstructing

Societies and Developing Identities, is being organized in conjunction with the Art

History Club at California State University, Sacramento and will be held at CSUS

Saturday, April 9, 2011. Speakers specializing in the topic will be coming from

Colombia, Japan, New York, Southern California, Texas, and other regions to participate

in the discussion.

● Through the symposium directed at the targeted audience, experts and the

audience will discuss the role of art in the process of social repair and review

moments in history where art has been utilized for such purposes.

Phase Two: An interactive workshop, Me/We: Empowering Youth Through Art, will be

held at Capitol Heights Academy, an Aspire Public School, from September 12-15, 2011.

The workshop involves children (ages 8-10) creating a public mural with a well-known

Sacramento muralist, Shane Grammer.

● As an artistic exercise, the workshop uses art to empower under-served youth

by creating recognition of their work and skill. This acknowledgment serves

to motivate the students towards pursuing higher ambitions and education,

which is the philosophy of Capitol Heights Academy, “College For Certain.”

Phase Three: An eye-opening exhibition, Latin American Photography: The Realities of

Poverty and Social Identity, will be held at the Blue Line Gallery from November 2011 to

January 2012. The exhibition will display photographs of Latin America by artists and

photojournalists.

● The exhibition will engage the public with a culturally and socioeconomically

distinct show that demonstrates art as an educational tool for bridging

suburban communities with those who are ignored or forgotten by society.

The show will reach a culturally diverse youth and family audience.

● The exhibition will display poverty as a lifestyle in Latin America with the

hope of spreading awareness and understanding of how marginalization

perpetuates poverty. We offer a new perspective on the impoverishment of

South America by conveying the spirit, attitude, and courage of the Latino

who characteristically manages to endure, regardless of limitations.

In line with our mission statement and our belief in art, Exploring the Power of Art will

create an understanding on how art is essential to the social, political, and cultural

development of societies.

This non-profit has a lot of future built into both its board as well as it's initiatives. I ran across their work one day when picking up my child from Capitol Heights Academy.

There is really no other art organization in Sacramento that does or provides anything similar to the services that SAHC makes available. The one project that caught my ... more »
