With millions of others, I marched this weekend in the #WomensMarch. Our crowd in Los Angeles numbered around 750,000. The Future Is Woke is the first in a series of paintings exploring this time of change.

Artists often use their creations as a sort of reflecting device that mirrors and focuses the viewers attention on social and political change.  As Marvin Gaye sang so poignantly- “What’s going on.”

As we carry the spirit of the Women's March forward: On Saturday, January 28th 2017, from 1-3pm at the Santa Monica Art Studios, a vibrant panel discussion on Art in the Time of Trump will be held. 

Santa Monica Art Studios, 3026 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica CA 90405

Yareli Arizmendi - Actress/Screenwriter

Rain covers the Los Angeles basin this morning as President Obama leaves office. I want to take a moment to thank you, Barack Obama, for 8 years of hard work and commitment to affordable health care for all, LGBTQ equality, transgender rights, environmental protections, and so much more. Today and tomorrow and forever, I honor Barack Obama who led this country with wisdom, dignity, and compassion.
