Join Harlem School of the Arts for a special Artist Talk with exhibiting artists of the current “Shelter” exhibition. One of the basic needs, with food and love, SHELTER, is a major concern for all living beings, especially when it comes to refugees, immigrants, those struggling to pay the rent, and victims of domestic violence. Moderated by Jonathan Patton, HSA Director of Visual Arts, artists will discuss their creative process and their artistic interpretation of the theme of “shelter”. This discussion aims to bring light to the struggles in the search for this essential ingredient for happiness and security.
