Art Show Raises Money for SF Food Bank

March 27, 2012

The USF School of Law Equal Justice Society’s Eighth Annual Creative Justice Art Show raised more than $1,200 for the San Francisco Food Bank. The March 16 fundraising event was titled “Hunger Pains,” and aimed to illuminate the experiences of those who go hungry in the community.

Kelly McCabe's "Sutter and Jones" was selected as the favorite visual art piece at the Creative Justice Art Show.

“Understanding the law and how to use it as a tool for social justice demands more than just critically reading cases,” Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Erin Dolly said. “It requires students to engage in the community and to understand how the law impacts our society, particularly those who are at a disadvantage.”

Approximately 80 people attended the art show, which featured 40 pieces of visual art and four live art performances from 30 artists, including two paintings by first-year law student Kokeb Zeleke. Artist Kelly McCabe’s “Sutter and Jones,” a two-part photograph and painting submission, was selected as the favorite visual art piece. Jazz guitarist Roger Kim donated his time to perform at the event.

Professor John Adler and Maya Grey 3L, president of the 2011–2012 Equal Justice Society Board, provided opening remarks.

“Part of our mission is to train lawyers who are conscious of the world around them and ready to help in whatever way to make it a better place,” Adler said. “The art around us—the canvases, the sculptures, the photographs, the music, and the spoken word—is a tremendous vehicle for…raising consciousness.”
