Vetoed Dreams: Public Art in the Age of Insurrection

Thursday, April 6, 7:00 PM Doors open at 6:00 PM

This event is co-sponsored by Mural Arts Philadelphia.

Join multidisciplinary artist Theodore A. Harris, the anonymous art collective Mz. Icar, and poet Lamont B. Steptoe in a conversation moderated by Dr. Mey-Yen Moriuchi to examine how the public art landscape has changed over time. Each artist on this multigenerational panel brings a unique perspective to their work as public artists. They will share their experience and vision for public art and mural making, in careful consideration of the impacts of voter suppression, mass incarceration, white supremacy.

Mural Arts Philadelphia and The Guild are collaborating with Theodore A. Harris to create a portable mural based on his 1995 collage, Vetoed Dreams.  Registrants for this event are invited to experience PAFA’s installation of Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America before the panel, from 6:00 – 6:50 pm.
