San Francisco Arts Commission Exhibition Not Alone
San Francisco Arts Commission Exhibition Not Alone

"The artists in Not Alone engage in building narratives about and with members of the Armed Forces and their families through media including photography, drawings, prints, sculpture, audio works, installations and 360 video. Their works offer perspectives on a variety of topics including veteran support networks, the experiences of spouses and children of US military personnel and how veterans examine their own identity and personal relationships. Local artist Michael Hall presents a series of intricate paintings tracing letters his father penned while deployed in the First Gulf War, while local veteran artist Rodney Ewing is creating a new installation in collaboration with his veteran father.

The exhibition also features artworks by artists who are focused on creating platforms for veterans and their communities of care to tell their stories. For example, the exhibition hosts artist Monica Haller’s Veterans Book Project, a traveling, ever-growing library of books authored by active duty soldiers, veterans and family members about the personal impact of recent American-led wars."
