<< Previous Page | Come Together Online Exhibit Home

Artist Nancy Hom participated in the exhibit panel discussion and attended the opening reception. Sal Güereña is the director of CEMA.

Nancy Hom was born in Toisan, China in 1949, grew up in New York City, and currently resides in San Francisco,California. She received a BFA in illustration and communication from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, in 1971. Community life and social issues inspire her multidimensiona l efforts as a visual artist, writer/poet, community arts leader, curator, and activist. Through her artwork, she often encapsulates the spirit of community through a single symbolic figure, gesture, or expression.

Hom has been an integral part of the Kearny Street Workshop for over thirty years, acting as Executive Director (1995-2003) and current advisory board member. In continuing to play a key role in developing community arts throughout San Francisco, Hom envisions herself as a “catalyst for change.”

Credits for the Exhibit

This exhibition is a project of the UCSB Faculty Working Group on Chicano Visual Art, (ImaginArte), a special interdisciplinary humanities project that is strongly connected to the collections in the UCSB Library's California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives, also known as CEMA. The project's aim was to promote new research, scholarship, exhibitions and publications, including greater online access to the visual legacy of the Chicano movement.

ImaginArte was launched with a grant under the auspices of the UCSB Chicano Studies Institute that provided the major funding for the Come Together event, including the exhibition and the artists' panel program.

Exhibition curatorial team members: Julianne P. Gavino Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, CEMA Director Sal Guerena, Callie Bowdish of CEMA, and Harrison Inefuku from the University of British Columbia.

We also appreciate the support from the MultiCultural Center and the College of Creative Studies, and in particular, its Gallery Director Dan Connally.
