Conscious Corner Episode 6 – Art For Social Change

In this episode of Conscious Corner, Camela Guevara is the featured guest. Camela is the Media Manager and Lead Designer for the College of Charleston Office of Sustainability and is a 2010 graduate of the College of Charleston. From 2017-2018 she also served as the Artist in Residence for the City of North Charleston. The discussion was how Guevara’s art is reflective of social change and linked to sustainability. Camela explains how the impetus of her artwork is largely focused on fiber arts and the undervalued labor that comes of weaving and sewing. Guevara’s art ranges from visual arts through painting with watercolors to up-cycling items intended for obsolescence in her fiber art for purposes of personal sustainability and perseverance through peace and transformative thinking around objects with artistic potential.
