The de Young Museum will host Oceanic painter, sculptor, and installation artist, Jewel Castro, from July 3 through July 28, 2013, as part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s Artist-in-Residence Program. With an artistic practice focused on Samoan history, art forms, and her relationships with her ancestors, Castro will transform the Kimball Education Gallery at the de Young into an intimate space for visitors to collaborate and share their own family histories.

Inspired by the art, architecture, sounds, people, food, colors, and textures of her Samoan grandparents’ home and church growing up, Castro states, “my art is about an Oceanic way of being, that is to say the collective experience which is both visible and invisible…an organic process of engaging history in the present.”

Born in Chicago and raised in San Diego, Castro received a BA in Art from San Diego State University and an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California at San Diego. She teaches studio art courses at the University of Washington at Tacoma and is also a mentor and speaker for the National Pacific Islander Educator’s Network (NPIEN).

Patrons are invited to visit Jewel Castro in the Kimball Education Gallery Wednesdays through Sundays from 1pm‒5pm and Fridays 1pm‒5pm and 6‒8:30 pm.
