This summer, Sugar Space Arts Warehouse, Mestizo Institute of Culture and Arts (MICA), and various community partners joined together to provide a platform for artists to engage with the present while reimagining tomorrow, and contributing to collective healing and action through public art.
The UMFA is bringing together artists and organizers from the public art series Pain & Possibility, to reflect, engage, and further this important conversation around the healing power of public art. Artists and cultural workers play critical roles during these moments of unrest, uncertainty, and revolution. Join us for an evening of reflection and learning around the artists' work and experiences with Pain & Possibility.
