Why is art an important form of activism? Find out with Imna Arroyo and Duvian Montoya as they discuss how their artworks have called attention to “women’s energy”, Latin American identity, and immigration. Students from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Waterbury will also talk about their own protest art from the project, Art as Protest, created by Angélica Huertas. Join the conversation with Arroyo, Montoya, and the students from BGC by asking questions and commenting on why art is an important form of activism.   

This is the first of five programs celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. 

VIRTUAL OPTION: You can also watch this discussion virtually by purchasing a Zoom ticket through our registration form.
