Queer Icons
Digital Mural by Gabriel García Román
In Queer Icons, Gabriel García Román's most recent body of work, he seeks to aggrandize the image of many in the Queer/Trans communities of Color through a personal and introspective series of photographic and mixed-media works. The subjects in the series are drawn from many facets of the gender and queer spectrum, and these images give visibility to a population that’s generally under-represented in the art world.

What We Do To The Mountain, We Do To Ourselves
By Chip Thomas
Artist Statement: In Flagstaff, Arizona, there is an effort on the part of the Navajo and Hopi tribes to not use reclaimed waste water on a local ski resort, the Snowbowl. The thirteen surrounding tribes hold the San Francisco Peaks as a sacred mountain and land. The tribes believe that deities within their respective cosmologies reside there. To use reclaimed wastewater is considered a desecration in a place where Indigenous people go regularly to pray, collect herbs and to be in the presence of the holy ones.

Paul Lewin
Digital Mural

Paul Lewin is a self-taught artist born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1973 and moved to the U.S. with his family in 1977. While he currently resides in Oakland, CA, he grew up in Miami, FL. Raised by a family of storytellers, Lewin grew fond of his father’s stories of the old country in Jamaica and became inspired by the cultures he was introduced to as a child. Initially starting with pencil and paper to create his own stories and representations of himself, he continued to paint in acrylics as his medium.
