On Good News Santa Cruz, Thursday, October 24, 2020, Debora Bone interviewed Sara Friedlander about art and social change. Sara is an incredibly accomplished artist and activist rooted right in here in Santa Cruz but whose influence is global. Her work includes photography, painting, collage, ceramics and mixed media, portraying imagery that encourages viewers toward introspection about the issues that shape our lives, both past and present.
Most recently, Sara has helped curate exhibits at the Resource Center for Nonviolence, with the local group ARRT, Artists Respond and Resist Together.
ARRT projects have included signage for Climate marches, materials for Resist Fest with Indivisible , votage candles to encourage voting, vote rocks, crimson ribbons to grieve COVID deaths, and many others, including supporting Black Lives matter.
Working currently with Indivisible on a large projection project to encourage voting
