KQED (SAN FRANCISCO) -- “Power of Community” is the first publicly accessible exhibition since the school reverted to online teaching in compliance with statewide health protocols. Working with SFSU students enrolled in the innovative Art 619 Exhibition Design course and in support of the Stop AAPI Hate coalition, curators Sharon Bliss and Kevin B. Chen conceived of the exhibition as a welcoming gesture to visitors from the campus community and beyond and, most importantly, a clear signal that both the gallery and the college value racial diversity.
