See Something, Say Something
Museum of Sonoma County
February 10th – April 20th, 2019

The warning, “See Something, Say Something,” on posters and in announcements at bus depots, train stations and airports, encourages citizens to stay alert and speak up if they notice something amiss. Individuals, vested with a sense of obligation towards their fellow citizens, can work together to spot potential threats to safety, in the event that police, government, parents and teachers fail to do so.

While the phrase originated to convey the threat posed by terrorism after the 9/11 attacks, in this exhibition the meaning of the phrase “see something, say something,” is expanded to encourage individuals to call out additional threats to society such racism, sexism, economic disparity, and climate change.

The three artists in See Something, Say Something, David Huffman, Evri Kwong, and Linda Vallejo, are observant and they are vocal. Through their work, they identify and name dangers, approaching social issues with intelligence, sincerity, and wit. In this, they provide a community service, identifying important issues that affect us all.
