Looking Back to See Our Way Forward is a series of portraits made by the Arts and Humanities class of 2012 to commemorate Berkeley High Alumni from the past 100 years who’ve made a significant impact on our community. Students selected twelve alumni who were inspirational to them in the areas of writing, activism, athletics and the arts. The portraits were first drawn in ink and then made into digital files and printed on vinyl to be installed to utility boxes around the perimeter of Berkeley High School. Set in the public realm for passers-by to view and appreciate, these images spark appreciation for our fore bearers and give an opportunity for us to reflect on individuals in our community who’ve set a precedent of innovation, imagination and social transformation over the years, helping to shape what Berkeley is today.
