In collaboration with Project Rebound, The Art Gallery is pleased to present "The Rose that Grew From Concrete" an exhibition which features artwork from individuals who have been in prison or who are currently incarcerated. The exhibition takes its title from the poem of the late Tupac Shakur, aiming to echo his idea of triumphing despite great struggles, making a connection between Tupac’s message and the work of Project Rebound. Project Rebound is all about the business of "each - one - teach - one."

Artist Shenny Cruces received her Master of Fine Arts from SF State in 2011. Since that time she has taught and exhibited widely. Cruces seeks out objects that were once valued but have since found their way to flea markets and other such places. She then casts each individual object in porcelain and uses these reproductions to create her installations.
