Jim Hill

Artist, educator, and activist Jim Hill was once referred to as “a one-man community service center.” Growing up in an economically disadvantaged community in New York City, Hill used unconventional art supplies, such as recycled ephemera from print advertisements, magazines, posters, and flyers, to form his own color palette. His art fosters a humanitarian and biblical purpose: to care for the marginalized, depict humanity’s perseverance, and instill the fact that we are all equal regardless of race or ethnicity.
