Toma Las Calles! Take It to the Streets! An interview with Melanie Cervantes of Dignidad Rebelde

ImageWhoa, lucky me! I recently interviewed printmaker and activist, Melanie Cervantes of Dignidad Rebelde. I see Melanie’s prints everywhere: at each protest or demonstration I attend, in the office of the grassroots organizations I volunteer with, in the collective households I visit. Melanie’s work is prolific and grounded in a belief that art belongs to the people and is a powerful tool for organizing the masses into action. She is wise and humble and reminds me why I do what I do. You can read the interview at SFMOMA’s blog, Open Space.
