Join artists Sergio de la Torre and Chris Treggiari on Sunday April 21st for a printmaking workshop! Come for the workshop and stay for the food trucks at Presidio Picnic.
Sergio De La Torre and Chris Treggiari’s Sanctuary Print Shop is a functioning print shop that also serves as a community space. It aims to raise awareness about immigration policies and how they impact our communities. Through sharing visual infographics and silkscreen community workshops, the Sanctuary Print Shop educates visitors on the history of the sanctuary ordinance and serves as a resource center and catalyst for public engagement in the movement to uphold immigrants’ rights.
Sanctuary Print Shop has been featured in various museums and institutions including SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Institute of Contemporary Art San Jose, Thacher Gallery, University of San Francisco, FOR-SITE Foundation and more.
This program is held in conjunction with Then They Came For Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans During WWII and the Demise of Civil Liberties, a special multimedia exhibition featuring imagery by noted photographers commissioned by the U.S. government’s War Relocation Authority, including Dorothea Lange and Clem Albers, along with photographers Ansel Adams, Toyo Miyatake and Paul Kitagaki, Jr.
Gallery Hours: Wed-Sun, 10 am to 6 pm, FREE and open to the public.
