Celebrating Justice In Justice

September 04 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Studios on the Park invites the community to join in this special opening celebration of the Justice In Justice exhibition at Studios on the Park. The evening's events include a documentary screening of Healing Justice at Park Cinemas, the premiere of Justice In Justice at Studios on the Park and locally grown, global eats for purchase from the Hungry Mother food truck.

The evening begins at Park Cinemas at 6 pm with the screening of Healing Justice, which explores the causes and consequences of the current North American justice system and its effect on marginalized communities. The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community, and generational level. This powerful documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and the importance of healing and restorative practices.

Designed for dialogue, Healing Justice is meant to prompt questions and open conversations, exploring trauma, justice, and healing.

At 7 pm, the community is invited to Studios on the Park for the premiere of Justice In Justice. In this exhibit, artistic expressions illustrating the transactional nature of what the justice system imposes on the people caught up within it are juxtaposed with visuals of those ways in which justice is served by placing humanity within the context of seeking justice-in-justice.

Together with advisory and outreach support of Mauer Kunst Consulting's Henry A. J. Ramos and Frank de Jesus Acosta, guest curators Heather and Kevin Mikelonis invited artists in all mediums to share compelling, thought-provoking, and fearless expressions on this theme. They hope that this resulting collection of works will serve to educate, inspire, remove fear and form bonds with one’s own other. Perhaps even ask, of what are we so afraid?

Tommy and Alli Stein are bringing their Hungry Mother food truck to the Studios front door with a dinner to nourish the body and feed the soul. Their ever-evolving menu is inspired by the seasonality and availability of fresh local produce in the bountiful Central Coast and features simple, flavorful dishes with Asian spice and vivacity, Southern warmth and West Coast balance.
