For Favianna Rodriquez, Art Is Political Activism

. . . art . . . can show the way in which we wish
to build the world. . . .
~ Favianna Rodriquez, Visual Artist

Take six minutes to view this well-produced KQED video about West Oakland, California, printmaker and political activist Favianna Rodriquez, who, calling art "a human right", channels her energies into ways that combine her passion for the visual with her passion for creating change benefiting all of society.
