Joan Brown: In Living Color

An exhibition of works on paper, Joan Brown : In Living Color, reflects the bold originality and the continued impact Brown has had on artists, educators, and collectors in the Bay Area and beyond. Joan Brown’s deep determination and humanistic commitment catalyzed artists in the San Francisco Bay Area to forge a path against the grain of formalism in upholding the narrative. The core of Joan Brown’s life and experiences became the subject of her art.

Joan Brown : In Living Color reveals the intimate and personal in the renderings of an artist who never stopped drawing. Any piece of paper could be taken in hand for notation of child, cat, dream, or view of oneself. Many of these works come from the artist’s estate and have never been exhibited publicly.

Earth, Wind, and Fire

In conjunction with Joan Brown: In Living Color, the Richmond Art Center is presenting a companion exhibition, Earth, Wind, and Fire

In Earth, Wind, and Fire, the Richmond Art Center looks to artists working across multiple media to investigate, reflect, and assert a vision of the environment, nature, and human nature as played out in an ecology of imminent concern.

Pogo Park: A New Model for Community Transformation

Complementing Pogo Park’s 10th Anniversary, the exhibition Pogo Park: A New Model for Community Transformation showcases the vision, concept and design, models, stories, and voices of the people involved in transforming little-used city park (Elm Playlot and Harbour-8 Park) into safe and vibrant place that sparks children’s imagination and initiative.

Pogo Park is about much more than playgrounds. Its unique approach combines two distinct but interrelated strategies: child development and community development.
