National Conference Multicultural Artist Panel moderated by Betty Ann Brown and Linda Vallejo
Ave 50 Studio
Highland Park, CA
February 11—March 4, 2012
The two‐hour panel will be presented in a format designed by Suzanne Lacy that stimulates intimate dialogue between the panelists and engages the audience in a focused and exciting dialogue. Panel topics will include “Woman, Artist, and Activism,” and “Community Engagement and Professionalism.” No two women artists follow the same path through an art career. These remarkable artists have found unique ways to break through the layers of obstacles before them in order to create work that is both meaningful to them and to the communities in which they live. Their successes have made them a part of the global dialogue that has opened doors for them and for others that follow.
Moderator: Linda Vallejo.
