Add to Calendar 10/08/2021 10:00 am 01/03/2022 6:00 pm America/Los_Angeles Making Visible the Connections | Ben F Jones & William Rhodes Through their respective work, Rhodes and Jones are both asking the questions and offering solutions, holding the space for these necessary dialogues to happen on both the macro and micro levels of engagement, both ultimately embodying a belief in the old adage that is more urgent and true than ever: Only we can change the world. If not us, who? If not now, when? The Desai | Matta Gallery The Arts at CIIS arts@ciis.edu false MM/DD/YYYY

Though twenty-five years and 3,000 miles apart—Rhodes on the West Coast and Jones in the Northeast—the artists are rooted in an intergenerational dialogue with artmaking at its core. They share a faith in the transformative, even revolutionary, potential of art to make connections visible through storytelling. Join us to explore their visual language for change.

On October 8, 2021 at 6:15PM, please join us for a virtual art opening via Zoom:


Log in sharply by 6:15PM PST, and the first 20 guests will receive a complimentary copy of Rhodes and Jones' ground-breaking, beautifully designed 150-page catalog showcasing their most critical works.
