My name is Ruth Chase, I live in Northern California and was born and raised in VENICE, CA. I started out as an oil painter that has evolved into a filmmaker, creating multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect the identity and the value of people.
“Participating in BELONGING allowed me to share how I connect children with nature, land, and bring a sense of belonging to a place”
“You are turning being a member of our town into an art. I can’t wait to see the progress and participate in BELONGING. This is one of my favorite ways of belonging here!!
“Growing up in Venice, I learned that we all make a choice in life – we choose where we want to live in our consciousness, and how we want to spend our precious days on this earth”
“Everybody earns a second chance just like Eddie Hadvina in West of Lincoln Project”
“Thank you my Venice Sister! You have a awakened a pride in me that I haven’t felt in a long time regarding our hometown of Venice”
