Exhibition Artists Statement: Alameda is a tight knit community that has, since its early years, been a small but powerful entity in altering public opinion. Though small and strangely closed off from the communities around it, it has been proven to project consistently progressive viewpoints to its surrounding larger-bodied neighbors. As a shell grows slowly but steadily under the rules of the Pythagorean Theorem, the breadth of what we produce as a niche culture has increased in complexity while also physically growing in infrastructure. Our city has grown its size while also increasing its cultural diversity and all-inclusive values. Alameda high school is a prime example of what happens when people have a safe and accepting environment to create in, and in this political climate, this is a shell that we need to protect.
