3.9 Art Collective / Rodney Ewing

Rodney Ewing is an artist working out of San Francisco California. His drawings, installations, and mixed media works focus on his need to intersect body and place, memory and fact to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and events. His most recent accomplishments include a de Young Museum Artist in Residency, and a SFAC grant to pursue his collaborative project “Untethered”- A History of Displacement in the Fillmore District.

The 3.9 Art Collective is an association of African American artists, curators, and art writers who live in San Francisco, and came together to draw attention to the city’s dwindling population of black residents. The Collective bears witness to this phenomenon and seeks to reverse it by drawing attention to the historical and ongoing presence of black artists in the city and creative expression in its black communities.
