To celebrate the annual theme of Revolution, SFAI Equal Justice alumni Ann Lewis has made an exclusive print for our community. This print celebrates change and the blue is the same color as the SFAI courtyard.

There are 20 signed prints in this edition. Prints are $300.

Print title: The only Constant is Change
About the print:
Quiet revolutions are the most extraordinary.

Individual transformations unfold along non-linear trajectories every moment of every day.
One can honor these moments with action and presence, or, succumb to a passive, inert occupation.
These unseen fluctuations forge invisible cities, mapped only by our responses, these clandestine revolutions.
Such loci are wellsprings of frisson, where our collective power lies.

About the process:

I worked with Mary Tremonte, a gifted screen printer (@marymackprints on IG) based in Pittsburgh and part of the Just Seeds Artist Co-Op. This is our second collaboration, and I’m just blown away by the beauty of her magnificent gradients. I’m wildly finicky about color, and she always nails it. One of the blues in this print is precisely the same color as the interior walls of the SFAI atrium. I wanted to honor the serenity of that space and my time there by including it in the print. When I look at The only Constant is Change, I feel the presence of those quiet revolutions I experienced at SFAI. It’s important to remind ourselves of those moments. It’s even more important to share them. I’m super grateful to Mary for her labor which made sharing this concept with the SFAI community a reality.
