Art of the Family is an in-progress part of the Paradise Project
Part I of Paradise…, The Human Family Tree, focuses on four Christian families of Asian, African, Latin and European descent. The Human Family Tree debuted at the Bayview Opera House in San Francisco, CA on December 19, 2000 through January 14. 2001. It was then shown at Newspace Los Angeles from September 11 through October 13, 2001. Part II, Families in Paradise was exhibited at SomArts Main Gallery in San Francisco from January 8 through 28, 2004 and featured two Jewish and two Muslim families. Part III, Art of the Family is currently in progress. When Part III is complete, four Jewish and four Islamic families, respectively, will be portrayed in these latter two installations.
Think Round's current emphasis will be to host simultaneous exhibitions of these first three installations under the title: Families of Abraham and is intended to serve as a touchstone for panel discussions and family art making on the topic of global social and political conflict resolution among these family members.
Derived from the first two installations, selected paintings from The Families of Abraham exhibit are scheduled for exhibition from October 18 through December 30, 2013 at Hardin Studios in San Francisco, CA.
