How can artists and arts organizations harness the power of art to create positive change?
Join us for a conversation on the power of the arts—talk with artists, producers, creators, and innovators to discover how art can powerfully impact communities, and tackle some of the very real challenges that come with that work.
With Dennis RedMoon Darkeen, Patty Dukes and Reph Star of Circa95, Ariana Hellerman of Ariana’s List, and more to be announced!
Enjoy some great conversation, refreshments, and new connections.
Also on exhibit at the BMHC: The 60’s: Decade of Change – The Sixties were arguably the years of greatest social change in American history. Benedict J. Fernandez, a Puerto Rican and Italian photographer from East Harlem, captured some of the most powerful and emotionally-resonant moments of America during this tumultuous time.
