YBCA, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF), and San Francisco Pride come together to present Identity and Pride: Youth Art Show.

About

With artwork developed by youth members of BGCSF’s Citywide Arts Program, the exhibition offers a glimpse into the perspectives of youth ages six to eighteen from the Western Addition, Bayview-Hunters Point, Excelsior, Tenderloin, and Mission communities. Through sculpture, photography, digital art, prints, and textiles, the show explores broad themes of identity, including gender, ethnicity, culture, community, and love. Representing love and sexuality as facets of identity, the exhibition also includes a showcase of youth artwork repurposing the iconic rainbow pride flag in celebration of the 49th Annual SF LGBT Pride Parade and Celebration.

The youth artists have created an exhibition that shows both the forces impacting young people today, from community acceptance or rejection of their identities to national debates on race and equality.
