Presented in collaboration with Hemispheric Conversations Urban Art Project (HCUAP) at the University of Pittsburgh, this month's program will focus on the collaborative mural project, Disrespecting the Border, that was created for the Latinx community of Pittsburgh in October 2019. We'll join a conversation about the role of mural art as a resource to think through migration and border politics between visiting artist Gil Rocha and local artists Leah Patgorski and Max Gonzales organized by Camilo Ruiz and Marisol Vilella Balderrama. The talk will be facilitated by Dr. Caitlin Bruce. Join us to hear about the dialogues, motifs, and collaborations that came out of the project and their salience today.
