This is What Democracy Looks Like

Curated by the SF Bay Area Urban Sketchers, these drawings chronicle resistance and demonstrations from the local (Bay Area, New York, Oregon) to the global (Turkey, Wales).  The sketches, like the events themselves, are part of a worldwide effort to highlight community engagement in social and political action.

The mission of Urban Sketchers is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world. With a small sketchbook, pencil or pen, sketchers “see the world one drawing at a time.”

The show runs from February 15, 2018 to March 30, 2018. The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology is located in 102 Kroeber Hall on Bancroft Way at College Avenue on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. The Museum entrance is located through the courtyard, on the southern side of the building. For more information please visit

We want to express our appreciation to both Blick Art Materials and Flax Art & Design in Oakland for supporting our show.

This exhibit is located in the hallway of Kroeber Hall, between the Hearst Museum’s Gallery and the Worth Ryder Gallery
