For first generation Colombian American muralist, Jessica Sabogal, art serves as a haven, a tribute, a creative outlet of adoration and exaltation for women with stories often untold. Her pieces possess a vision of female identity that is revolutionary and powerful, brave and beautiful. By utilizing a spray can, she aims to color her canvas by unraveling stories she once heard, lived, struggled, and loved.
Sabogal is an artist that continues to grow with resilience, prosper with purpose, and paint without fear. She seeks to connect the world around us with art that reminds all that women are to be valued, glorified, respected, and above all, loved.
When She Rises was a 10 week exhibit, opening Saturday, July 7th, 2018, with a global art market, public art, programming (panel discussions, screenings, workshops), and intergenerational and intersectional knowledge exchange through art at SPARC.
When She Rises is centered in the themes of social justice and ecology justice and will focus on the holistic wellness of the artist and her community.
