Artist Statement
The pieces exhibited in Drive-By-Art Los Angeles were all created outside of my studio in a makeshift area of my home.  Artists all over continue to create through the world’s challenges.  It’s what we’ve always done.

Sharon Barnes is an interdisciplinary visual artist, born in Sacramento, CA and raised in South Los Angeles. She has exhibited widely including the California African American Museum, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Aqua Art Miami, and the Arco Chato in Panama. Her work explores cultural memory, struggle, and resilience through the use of process and materials.
