Join us for an informal conversation with featured artists from the Community Curator exhibition, Sanctuary City. The event will be mediated by the curator, Julia Csekö and followed by a Q&A. The exhibition closes on Saturday, November 19 so this is your last chance to check it out!
Sanctuary City showcases emerging and accomplished mid-career artists and a variety of media, from installations to award-winning comic books, the works on view address themes of immigration and community building. Experiences of trauma are commonplace in the lives of immigrants, but that does not invalidate or diminish the experiences and narratives of love, found family, resilience, resistance, and friendship. We dive into this conversation with heightened awareness, open ears, and hearts, taking in the ideas presented to us in hopes to learn, offering safe spaces, and creating more welcoming and safer environments for immigrant and refugee populations.
