View Portfolio


Nien-Ken Alec Lu volunteered for 826 Valencia partnering with American Conservatory Theatre to illustration this Monologue and play poster (and book cover) for San Francisco Downtown High School’s Acting for Critical Thought Project. This play explores gentrification and activism written and performed by the students of Downtown High School.

He wants to support his local community with his works especially for our next generation in education, equality, diversity, and inclusion. He would like to thank AD: Vivian Sming of 826 Valencia, A.C.T, and the students of Downtown High School to let him illustrate this meaningful event and the chance to stand up for the community.
