February Artists-in-Residence: Artist Fellows Todd Brown and Monique Jenkinson

February 1, 2012February 12, 2012

INHERITANCE and DREAMS
Final Exhibition by de Young Artist Fellow Todd Thomas Brown
Artist Reception: February 4th, 3pm-5pm
Kimball Gallery

How do we face our personal and collective histories, as individuals and as a human family in conflict with one another? What is our inheritance, and is it possible to transform it?  
Brown's process is an on-going inquiry into the complexity of global identities: the ways in which we identify ourselves and others, the groups and cultures we inhabit, and the need for creative environments where we can encounter one another in a meaningful way. The February exhibit INHERITANCE and DREAMS concludes Brown's year-long Fellowship with the de Young Museum.
