CAROL JACOBSEN PRESENTS
“WOMEN OF COLOR AND ACCOMPLISHMENT”
Marin TV is pleased to showcase “Women of Color and Accomplishment” paintings from artist Carol Jacobsen at the Georgia Anwell Gallery at the Community Media Center of Marin.
The body of work included in this show is my creative response to the murder of George Floyd. Watching the horrific video of his murder and the subsequent attacks on protesters by white supremacists motivated me to find a way to fight racism. Like other social justice painters, I decided to use my skills to help people look beyond the color of one’s skin and instead judge them by their character.
As a painter with 50 years’ experience, I embarked on a series of portraits of African American women who continue to be left out of history books. I painted the 100 portraits in the series Women of Color and Accomplishment to share their lives of dedication to overcoming challenges and giving back to their community. They inspired me to give back to my community by spreading awareness of their actions. Starting dialogs with others on racism in this country, both past and present, I hope to motivate people to help oppose racism and promote racial equality.
