Favianna Rodriguez is one of the first recipients of the ChangeMaker Award from Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco. The award will be presented at Intersection's 45th Anniversary Gala on June 12.
Favianna was a Getty Intern at CSPG in 1998 and received our "Art is a Hammer" Award in 2005. She is a co-founder of the Taller Tupac Amaru, a founding member of the Oakland-based collective EastSide Arts Alliance (ESAA), a co-founder of mural and graffiti arts organization Visual Element and co-owner of Tumi's Design, a multi-service technology and design firm implementing advanced graphic and web technologies with a social consciousness.
Since 1998, Favianna's pieces have been posted on street corners, store windows, telephone poles, raised at mass rallies and community festivals, or may have found their way into your mailbox. Her work exemplifies a commitment to community empowerment and a dedication to youth finding their own voice through art.
