Description

Two Spirit Artist Clif Cox brings a show of his Two Spirit Healing Art to St. Cyprian’s Sanctuary Gallery as part of the church’s 2018 Pride Celebration. The show reflects Cox background as a Native American and Two Spirit artist. It may be seen when the building is open or by appointment.

A Meet the Artist Reception with Cox is set to start at 7 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. on Friday, June 15. Set at the intersection of Turk Boulevard and Lyon Street, St. Cyprian’s is on the 31 Balboa bus line.

He is an active member of Art From The Heart Heals, which he helped form during the spring of 1995 as a response to AIDS. As the epidemic claimed many lives and lowered people’s self-esteem, a small group of community artists responded by founding a support group of artists living with AIDS which is Art From The Heart Heals.

“We started having exhibits at the Shanti headquarters and in local San Francisco restaurants,” he said Art From The Heart Heals continued to have frequent exhibits including a major exhibit at Mayor Frank Jordan’s office. “Our artists continued working with educating the community by painting one of the largest AIDS murals in the United States,” he added. Titled Hope For The World Cure. It was completed in 1998 at the corner of 16th and Market in San Francisco.

“Hopefully, when I die or am cured of the AIDS virus, people will see some of the scenes from my AIDS existence in this history,” Cox said of the mural in a recent article in Hoodline. “A mural can translate, in non-threatening ways, the reality of existence and our hopes.”

Currently, Two Spirit (LGBT Native Americans) and allies have joined the nonprofit art group. They have done a number of exhibits at Native American POW WOW’s, including San Francisco State University SKINS, UC Berkeley student POW WOW, and other exhibits.
