MoAD Emerging Artist Program presents Chanell Stone: Natura Negra

Art+Action—San Francisco’s first coalition for civic participation that spans art, creative, community,
business, technology, philanthropy, activist, and government sectors—is building a city-wide arts-based campaign that positions artists as catalysts to humanize the issues around the 2020 Census. During MLK week Art+Action will be activating MoAD with The Butterfly Effect—a group of Bay Area youth activists who have created over 40,000 butterflies in solidarity with the migrant children who have been and are currently in US detention centers—to underscore that every child counts… in the 2020 Census and in America. Art+Action will present a simultaneous 2020 Census activation with Sanctuary City Project on Monday, January 20 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA).
