About JoAnna

Contact me: Jmruckman@gmail.com

My work explores the intersections of social engagement and creative practice. I study and consider the layers of cultural identities performed on and by our bodies. I create art to further social justice, anti-racism, and human rights.

I am an anti-disciplinary artist, layering diverse media to create works ranging from public printmaking (see posters), to my visual and oral history project (see HairStories), to formal gallery installations (see toolswhite boxes).

I design for the Media team of Oakland Frontline Healers. I teach digital imaging courses in the Multimedia Arts Dept. at Berkeley City College. I am  and artist in residency at SFUSD building and teaching an anti-racist art curriculum for young students, with a project called We Color the Bay!. I design and print for SFPoster Syndicate. I received my MFA from SFAI in 2020 and earned my BA in Visual Arts and Cultural Anthropology from Brown University.
