Art as Protest: Stories from the Border
October 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Public art plays a significant role in our world. It is an invitation for community involvement— where one is encouraged to question and discover. In light of our current immigration crisis, we have seen art used as a form of protest in public parks, urban spaces, and even along the US/Mexico border. What may seem like a paradox of hope & despair, actually engages us in reimagining another narrative where human dignity can be restored. Join us for a conversation with artists Israel Alejandro Garcia Garcia and Enrique Javier Chi as they share how their art reflects the immigrant experience and the fight for justice.
We will be having a salad bar for dinner so bring a complementary side dish or dessert to share! Childcare is provided for ages 0-5.
