About this Collection

Richard William Evans (1942 January 20-2023 April 26) was a Black, gay artist, community advocate, and participant in the “back-to-the-land” movement in Northern California. As a member of the Stellar Arts Collective, Evans helped to create “The Power of the Sun,” a large-scale stained glass installation that was displayed in the State of California office building at 455 Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco from 1979 until the artwork’s destruction in a protest in 1991. The project proposal, photographic slides, oral history interview, and digital film in this digital collection document Evans's artistic work with the Stellar Arts Collective.
