To support participants in their personal exploration of the exhibit theme Pandemics as a Portal to Change, Krannert Art Museum is offering a panel discussion with local artists. Join them for a talk with local creatives to explore art as a tool for social change. The panelists include:
Ashanti Files, Urbana Poet Laureate/Writer
Liza Sylvestre, KAM Curator of Academic Programs/Multimedia Artist
Keenan Dailey, Graphic Designer/Multimedia Artist
Elizabeth Simpson, Cooperative Conflict/Performing Artist
They are seeking submissions of art, performance, poetry, spoken word, dance, performance, and more for the Pandemics as a Portal to Change Exhibition, a community art exhibit where art becomes the way for people to envision worlds beyond the pandemic of COVID-19, without racism and other ’isms, and beyond the climate crisis towards envisioning our world anew.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required | Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_AiuoFm-mQJCtKpQRliw3qw?
