5 Things You Can Do Now — Week 35

“Justice” at MarinMOCA

“Justice” is a contemporary art exhibit that explores racial inequality and the need for social justice in our nation. From a 300-pound bronze fist by Woody De Othello to a whimsical collage of Black femininity by Rashaad Newsome, the exhibit includes 40 artworks in all mediums. “Many art appreciators are unaware of the scores of accomplished local Black artists who are collected by museums across the country and have international reputations,” explains museum director, Nancy Rehkopf. Karen Jenkins-Johnson — a leading San Francisco Black gallerist and Marin County resident — brought all the artists together for this exhibition.
