REBUILDING THROUGH ART
Rebuilding Through Art is a mutual aid benefit gallery for the San Bernardino community. We are giving a platform to local artists while also giving back to our home that allows us to create these platforms! 100% of all donations will go into the mutual aid fund. However, the community will get to vote on where and what in the city the money will be donated. By allowing people to vote, we will be listening to the actual needs of the community and putting the money where it is most needed.

THE REBUILDING THROUGH ART GALLERY INSPIRED A NEW ON GOING PROJECT TITLED: THE ART CART
THE ART CART
The Art Cart is a mobile resource for artists to get inspired and give back to the IE art community by trading and donating art (prints, stickers, zines, etc.) and art supplies (paints, crayons, canvases, etc.) We will be collecting donations and conducting exchanges during the monthly DTSB art walks as well as at the Garcia Center for Arts. After materials are gathered we will be handing out supplies from the cart to a select amount of artists to create art pieces using only materials from the cart. We will be holding a gallery with these pieces and using the funds from the mobile gallery to create a permeant fixture in the Garcia Center for Arts for people to have access to free art and supplies.
Stay tuned as the art cart creates its permanent space and shares the art created by wonderful artists within the city.
My work explores the diversity of people’s work as artists and the uplift of my community. A lot of my influences come from others around the city who have similar missions with their work, such as Creative Grounds and Revive San Bernardino.
I was captivated by the local art community and after high school I decided that I would get involved as well. I never even really knew about the life blossoming in my city until I met Amanda Jade from Keep Your Crown Right Salon. She helped me introduce myself as an artist and let me know what was happening around the city. So, what started out as a small time painting gig, soon turned into an aspiration to be a part of the uplifting movement.
Everyone is so unique. I love meeting other artists and being able to see their process and emotions put into their work. I love being able to give other artists a platform to express themselves and give what Amanda gave to me to start my art career.
