“Stars and Bars,” by Paul Berger

The discussion moderated by Leah Andelsmith of the Arts Paper. Leah writes: “Anchored by the artwork on view, the conversation will focus on how we can bridge divergent perspectives and what we can all gain by trying on another’s eyes. What are our challenges, what are our points of connection, and how can we sight our path to the future?”

Salwa Abdussabur, Youth Program Developer, Artist, Activist, Lover, Fighter
