With a curatorial focus on engagement and interaction, the value of artistic survival, and shifts in the cultural landscape, inaugural exhibition curators Dana Hemenway and Amy Cancelmo have developed a show that highlights what Root Division does best: present occasions for artists to deepen their practice by creating and exhibiting exciting new works; provide a space for the public to interact and engage with exhibited artworks; afford audiences of all ages ongoing opportunities to create and learn. The featured works in RESONATE will collectively celebrate Root Division, highlight the value and depth of the organization’s artistic community, and its continued beneficial impact on Bay Area sustainability in the arts.
