The collaborative works by Bay Area artists KC Rosenberg and Modesto Covarrubias are, in many ways, conversations and exchanges of ideas between the two artists made tangible and tactile. The artists intentionally blur the lines of authorship in the art objects they create, sometimes passing them back and forth (as they did during the lockdown of the pandemic) and sometimes working together in each other’s studios to complete pieces. Both are mutually drawn to the ability of materials to transform and reassign meaning, not just in their assembly, but also in the space they occupy. Physical manifestations of forgiveness, expressing the anxieties of gentrification, or highlighting the way certain groups are systematically silenced are just some of the topics expressed in the work.

About the Open Diversity Arts Festival

As Saddleback College continues its work in addressing what it means to be an institution that truly embraces and honors diversity, the Open Diversity Arts Festival, sponsored by the Division of Fine Arts and Media Technology in partnership with the Associated Student Government, aims to educate, through demonstration, representation, and academic exchange, on a myriad of issues that are inherent to BIPOC Artist Scholars and their creative journeys.

Each episode of the Open Series will pair a Saddleback faculty member with a creative artist whose cultural background and artistic journey creates inspired artistic expression. We hope this series will educate and encourage the Saddleback College community as we strive to be a more knowledgeable, empathetic, and sensitive academic institution.
