Joan Baez: Mischief Makers

Joan Baez’s first solo painting exhibition, celebrates the “Mischief Makers” – the risk-taking visionaries

In her first solo painting exhibition, Joan Baez celebrates the “Mischief Makers” – portraits of people who have brought about social change through nonviolent action – the risk-taking visionaries. The exhibition reveals the lesser known “coyote element” – the humor and trickery essential in speaking truth to power, where shenanigans, along with music are the heart and soul of many successful nonviolent movements.

The cast of characters, most of whom Baez has known personally, include Martin Luther King, Jr., Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Czech Velvet Revolution leader Vaclav Havel, Malala Yousafzai, Bob Dylan, Congressman John Lewis, farm worker heroine Dolores Huerta, folk legend and activist Harry Belafonte, poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou, spiritual leader Ram Dass, the Dalai Lama, Bread and Roses founder Mimi Fariña, civil rights leader Reverend William Barber, Vietnam draft resistance leader and author David Harris, and native American medicine woman and activist Marilyn Youngbird. She also includes a portrait of herself as a young woman and one of a young monk inspired by a portrait she saw during a trip to Vietnam.
