Art in Context: Border Crossings

09 Jan 2018


Artists, scholars, and community members come together to consider creative expression in relation to timely political and social concerns. Art in Context: Border Crossings will explore shifting perspectives on historic and contemporary immigrant and refugee experiences in Pittsburgh and beyond. In a complex and contentious era of border closures, anti-immigrant rhetoric, and isolationism, what role do artists play in maintaining the free exchange of ideas across cultural boundaries?

Moderated by The Heinz Endowments' President Grant Oliphant, the panel features Betty Cruz, Founder of Change Agency; Tuhin Das, ICORN writer-in-residence at City of Asylum; Anne Madarasz, Chief Historian at the Heinz History Center; and John Righetti, President of the national Carpatho-Rusyn Society.

Art in Context: Border Crossings will take place at the Warhol Theater on Friday, January 5, 7:00-9:00pm. The program is free of charge, but registration is suggested.
