“Crossing to Safety,” showcases works by twelve artists in the San Francisco Bay Area who draw and reflect upon their families’ journeys to, and settlement in, a new land. Like each fresh wave of migrants, these refugees endured disease, hunger, substandard housing, racism, and exploitation yet went on to enrich northern California with their music, art, architecture, and cuisine.

The participating artists work in range of media to address the positive and negative experiences that both long-time residents and new immigrants now face in the Bay Area. The positive attributes include the reclamation of wetlands, availability local produce, and a vibrant and multicultural atmosphere, while the negative attributes include the growing influx of technology companies and their highly-paid employees which has caused soaring housing costs, eviction, and homelessness.

The artists in the exhibition–Emmanuel Montoya, Judy Shintani, Priscilla Otani, Salma Arastu, Sharon Siskin, Art Hazelwood, Ernest Jolly, Judy Johnson-Williams, Patricia A. Montgomery, Anthony Williams with Winston Berger, Rene Yanez—have dedicated their lives to art and activism on behalf of immigrants and other marginalized communities. Both the curators and artists believe that art can compliment social and economic reforms aimed at providing more equitable living conditions and jobs for all Bay Area residents.
