Weston Teruya: Sanctuary is a Practice

San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery

For the third installment of the San Francisco Arts Commission's (SFAC) Sanctuary City Art on Market Street Posters, Oakland-based artist Weston Teruya created a series of objects to explore the alliances and self-organization of communities that have faced injustices, xenophobia and gross disenfranchisement. The posters will be located in the bus kiosks along Market Street between the Embarcadero and 8th Street.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Weston Teruya: Sanctuary is a Practice :

Public transportation kiosks along Market Street feature a multi-part work from Bay Area artist Weston Terruya, focused on themes of sanctuary, in response to the San Francisco Arts Commission’s year-long programming around the role of Sanctuary Cities. Terruya worked with community members to create amulets crafted with symbolic artifacts from periods of historical oppression.
