The Albany Library (located at 1247 Marin Ave, Albany) is hosting a show, “This is What Democracy Looks Like” by the SF Bay Area Urban Sketchers. These drawings chronicle local unity demonstrations and marches. The sketches, like the events themselves, are part of a worldwide effort to highlight community engagement in social and political action.
The mission of Urban Sketchers is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world. With a small sketchbook, pencil or pen, sketchers “see the world one drawing at a time.”
The show is open now and runs through the 29th. For information about hours, please visit www.aclibrary.org. Please keep checking this blog and our Facebook Page for updates.
