Exploring BELONGING and the value of people to community. Questioning everything and following my curiosity.
West of Lincoln Project
I get goosebumps!! The West of Lincoln Project is truly AWESOME ! I love ALL the stories and people that make Venice so diverse, colorful and rich in spirit. I think this project is helping to heal hearts as well.
I was going to be raised the Venice way, the same way my uncles were raised. I looked up to them. I was Venice Trece, you know V13. Quote from the West of Lincoln Project.
The BELONGING project gives a voice and perspective of the Nisenan Indians, the Native Americans who were here for countless generations before the California gold rush. This project will help raise visibility and awareness of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe.
What an experience it all was living out the theme of I AM HERe, then sharing with our community through our exhibit. I feel truly grateful to Ruth for her vision and to each artist for what she brought to this journey.
Everybody earns a second chance just like Eddie Hadvina in West of Lincoln Project.
