For Which It Stands: A Virtual Town Hall

August 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


What defines the American experience? What makes a community? Inspired by the exhibition Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman, this three part series invites participants to a town hall-style Zoom with local artists and community stakeholders where we’ll address these and other questions as we grapple with the effects of a global pandemic and a renewed reckoning with racial injustice.

Join in conversation with South Carolina artists featured in Ecos: Arte Urgente, the Charleston Oral History Program at the Citadel’s multimedia exhibit spotlighting the experiences of Latinx immigrants in the Lowcountry, and in the exhibition Building a Legacy.

Speakers for the event include:

  • Diana Farfán was born in Bogotá, Colombia. An independent artist, instructor, cultural agent, and art mentor for Latino artists.
  • Paola Torres-Ruiz was born in 1988 in La Estancia, Colima, México. She is a ceramicist and printmaker who lives in Conway, South Carolina.
  • Reynier Llanes of Reynier Llanes Studio was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba in 1985. Llanes has numerous works in the Building a Legacy exhibition.

This event is free and open to the public, but requires registration. It will take place on Zoom. Registrants will receive the link to the Zoom webinar one day prior to the event. Register here: https://bit.ly/3fEbYKu
