Monster Love

Monster Love

Today Alma and her family came to pick up "Monster Love" for the Alvarado School 24th Annual auction taking place March 18th at the SOMArts Cultural Center in San Francisco. I'm glad to contribute! Here are Christopher, Tarak, Angelina and Alma with the piece, reverse painted on reclaimed glass.

Alvarado's art program is one of the strengths of their school, based on a model co-founded in 1968 by Ruth Asawa, a nationally renowned artist and activist who was once a teacher at the school. Asawa's program involved parents and professional artists in the public schools so that young children had the chance to develop more fully as individuals.

I'm looking forward to other ways I can participate with Alvarado in the future!
