MORRIS-JUMEL Mansion “ImagiNATIONS: Art as Solidarity” by Andrea Arroyo: Indoor Exhibition
ImagiNATIONS: Art as Solidarity is an ongoing series of artworks created in response to issues that touch us everyday, like immigration, civil and gender rights, displacement, gun violence, international conflicts and the environmental crisis. The works, which center around community concerns, reflect universal values of love, justice, equality and peace, and aim to build bridges across borders, languages and cultures, and to generate a dialogue about issues that are relevant at both the local and global level. Works from the series have been exhibited internationally and have been published in select international publications.
The exhibition will be on view from April 14 – June 12 during the museum’s public hours, Friday to Sunday from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
The museum will host a special social justice art making workshop with teachers on Saturday, April 30 from 9:30 -11:30 AM and a community open house, featuring a meet-and-greet with the artist on Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM.
