Where do we go from here?

Join Boston-area thinkers, institutions, entrepreneurs, activists, city officials, and artists at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for a free discussion to commemorate the Civil Rights Movement and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. This discussion aligns with themes found in “Monuments to Us,” on view now.

Our moderator will be Reverend Jeffrey Brown, associate pastor, Twelfth Baptist Church, Roxbury. Panelists include:

• Chaplain Clementina Chéry, president and CEO, Louis D. Brown Peace Institute

• Adrian Walker, columnist

• Chanel Thervil, artist and educator

Following the panel, hear from international artist Julia Vogl on People, Places, and the Power of Art, a presentation investigating how social engagement, democratic means of data collection, and wild color can transform places and ignite new connections in community. Vogl is currently working with Boston communities for her project Pathways to Freedom, commissioned by Jewish Arts Collaborative, on view on Boston Common from April 25 to May 2, 2018.

Arrive early to speak with Vogl. She will be near Taste Café from 4 pm on; visit her cart, ask questions on the themes of immigration and freedom, create an individual Pathways to Freedom button to take home, and help her create the final artwork.

Presented with support from the Dori H. Rahbar and Cameron R. Rahbar Fund.
